Manual setup for VyprDNS (e.g. Synology NAS)

At the moment, VyprDNS seems to be only available for users of the VyprVPN apps (confirmed by online support team).

In my case my Synology NAS need to connect as a client to VyprVPN (which works fine using the howto), but DNS queries are not resolved over VyprDNS as there seems to be no way to set the VyprDNS server address in /etc/resolv.conf (at least for me it does not get set automatically).

Would be great if we could get the VyprDNS server IP addresses to use for manual setups.

Now I have to use Google DNS servers as using the router IP address will bypass the VPN connection on DNS lookups (Wireshark confirmed). This only gives partial protection (only a degree of anonymity).

Of course, this might be integrated in a Synology NAS application, but that might still clash with my setup as the NAS is also my DHCP and DNS server (dnsmasq) for resolving internal network addresses (depending on how the app would be written of course).

        Same comment as for routers. We need to use VyprDNS with non-proprietary clients like openVPN as well.

        I've got the same issue. I'm stuck using Google DNS. My hardware is a GLI mt300n mini router.

        Same scenario here, I have headless Linux systems and cloud based systems I'd like to point to a good, anonymous upstream server, but sadly this doesnt appear to be supported.

        In case there is not manual setting of VyprDNS on roadmap is there a good/secure work around?
