ISP IPv6 DNS Still Populating on Clients (eero Secure & Local DNS Caching)?
I'm relatively new to this equipment and wanted to check if this is normal behavior. My ISP provides IPV6 via DHCPv6. I also have eero Secure and DNS local caching enabled. My assumption is that secure and local dns caching would override the ISPs default DNS and use the local router as the resolver for the LAN. It seems to do that for IPv4; however, IPv6 still get the ISP assigned DNS resolver to the LAN clients? I'm afraid this may be leaking DNS requests to my ISP and not using eeros DNS servers. I have tried restarting several times and the this persists. Is this normal?
When eero Secure is enabled it uses it's own DNS and will disable automatic DNS as eero Secure uses DNS to provide blocks and protections. Can you describe how you are identifying that eero Secure DNS is not being applied to your IPv6 devices?
This was has been solved! If you have eero secure enabled any outbound DNS traffic will be redirected towards the eero DNS server. This is exactly how is should be in this type of product and any DNS server you have assigned will be redirected to eero. 👍
