Is there a good guide for encrypting decrypting using Dnscrypt on Ubuntu?

  • There is a help center, if you are unsure how to post a question here. askubuntu.com/help – Dan Jul 1 '14 at 12:41
  • Does not work. The 3rd command. This is the result. sudo apt-get install dnscrypt-proxy E: Impossible find packet dnscrypt-proxy – user342487 Oct 26 '14 at 10:50

You can install Dnscrypt using ppa:shnatsel/dnscrypt PPA

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shnatsel/dnscrypt

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install dnscrypt-proxy

Here is how I got it working with OpenDNS

I got it to work with DNSCrypt.org client

  • libsodium4_0.4.5-0~trusty5_amd64.deb
  • dnscrypt-proxy-1.4.2.tar.gz
  • install them with gdebi-gtk

Nether in official ppa yet for Ubuntu 14.04 had to download them from:

Set DNS address 127.0.0.2 network tools KDE

sudo start it sudo service ddclient restart 
sudo service network-manager restart

$ dig debug.opendns.com txt
