STILL LEAKS DNS Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love using this program over my SSH connection from work. I have random wildcard sites setup so my work still thinks i am using the internet for something. HOWEVER, after all these years, this add-on still leaks DNS. I have just once again tested it using wireshark. Using profile manager i create a brand new default profile, configuring the proxy to point to my SSH connection (127.0.0.1:7070). I also set network.proxy.socks_remote_dns to true. Capturing using wireshark filtered only for DNS. All my DNS requests are going through my local squid server at home. I do not see any DNS requests in wireshark. However, I load my normal profile using foxyproxy, same settings, and all the requests go through my local DNS servers. Cmon man, can't you fix this? Whats the point off SSH tunneling if you have a DNS leak? This topic has been hot for years and I cannot believe that you haven't got right yet.
Wasn't sure how to reply to Eric's post: but yes, I do indeed have that checked.
EDIT: After working with the authors who were very supportive in getting this resolved, it was determined that FOXYPROXY was not the culprit. We are still working this one out, but I have proven that this add-on indeed does not leak DNS as I originally suspected. You can follow the progress of this issue at http://forums.getfoxyproxy.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=168&p=479#p479 . So I re-rate this product at FIVE stars.
Check "Perform remote DNS lookups on hostnames loading through this proxy"
Hi, on the Proxy Settings->General tab, do you have "Perform remote DNS lookups on hostnames loading through this proxy" checked or unchecked? It should be checked. The network.proxy.socks_remote_dns preference isn't used, as described in our FAQ.
Edit: We haven't been able to reproduce it (yes, using WireShark). Can you please help us debug the problem? If you make a new post in our forums (http://forums.getfoxyproxy.org), we will work with you to resolve it. Thank you... -eric
