VPN DNS Leak Test on Mac Os ?

Posted:
in Genius Bar
Hello All,

I am wondering if there is any VPN user her

I just got a VPN last week and as per some recommendation performed a DNS Leak Test : https://anonymster.com/dns-leak-test/

I am connecting using the protocol open vpn from the VPN software but after doing the test it seems my ISP is appearing in the test result meaning my ip is leaking.

Do you know on Mac OSX if there is something to deactivate in order to avoid this? 

So far i changed my computer DNS with the one recommended by the VPN provider but it does not seems to work.

Thx

    anonymster doesn't show the result of the test. How did you understand you have the leak?

    I've used this tool
    curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/macvk/dnsleaktest/master/dnsleaktest.py -o dnsleaktest.py
    chmod +x dnsleaktest.py
    dnsleaktest.py


    it shows me I haven't the leak.
