Any benefit to using Unbound DNS with NextDNS already setup on your endpoints?
Been playing around with NextDNS a bit and was wondering if there could be any benefit to using an unbound dns setting on the firewalla if your endpoint are already configured to use a nextdns service?
Unbound is there to replace DNS servers. See this article for details https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/4570608120979-Firewalla-DNS-Services-Introduction
OK, its starting to become clearer.....
So the unbound is totally separate method of dns resolution and does not work in conjunction and its benefit is that its local to the firewalla, when it forwards it uses multiple upstream revolvers so your requests are spread all over the place as opposed to being centralized.
I'm wondering if unbound feature is still sending those in queries clear text.....is that better or worse than using a service like nextdns and using an encrypted query over https or tls? Seems to me that the encrypted method would be preferred if available, then unbound? What is firewalla stance?
