Maybe off-topic. (didn't want to start a new thread for it)
Are https://www.dnsleaktest.com/ and https://ipleak.net/ reliable means to check for DNS leak?

@philotux:
nordVPN now has a client for linux, but it's not a GUI. I tried it but felt I have more control with manual methods.

Yes. Pay close attention on the jurisdiction of those VPNs. All of those VPNs are in the 14 eyes. Not good because those governments keep the logs. Still good information but incomplete because there are so many more VPNs.

I downloaded the Linux legacy version and ran this in a terminal in the download directory.

Code: Select all

sh pia-v82-installer-linux.sh
The legacy version is from October 2018 and not the latest but works fine in MX 18.
There are instructions on the PIA site Linux download page to install the stable version, that is the .run version.
