    Shouldn't be an issue, make sure you read up on resetting the unit incase things blow up. 

    Also in 1.46, we have a new feature to define in your DoH server, see if it works for you or not.  https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500012331082

    well, what I wasn't able to get working was to tell FWB+ that the DNS server is on the same IP as the FWB+. What should go to the Custom DNS entry? 127.0.0.1 or the actual IP adress?

    Ok, I got this running. To summarize:

    1. I installed NextDNS Cli on FWB+
    2. deactivated DoH on Firewalla, also
    3. unchecked the DNS Booster for all devices on the FWB+
    4. Changed the DNS IP to the one of the FWB+ device

    Now, all DNS goes through NextDNS Cli… I think it's working. There's one thing though that I don't understand FWB+ seems to block certain DNS queries. I don't understand the consequences of this currently. See below

    The domains that "blocked" are actually "not found or invalid domains".  Example "fknmlpacc" is not a domain ...  more information here https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500007220942-Firewalla-Blocked-Flows

    Why is your device query these strange things ... you may want take a look
