    I am in a country that blocks Wikipedia.
    I am using DNSCrypt for years now from OpenDNS on a tomato routeur.
    When I go on wikipedia, it is still blocked. I dont understand why...

    I checked if i have some DNS leaks but no...

    How can I overcome that problem without turning on my VPN?
    Do you think I have a problem with my DNS?

    Perhaps they are not filtering by method of DNS, or maybe they are DNS filtering in addition to something else.

    Did you only just start having issues with Wikipedia? or has it ever worked with DNSCrypt alone?
    I'm not aware of all ways filtering could occur, but they might just be blocking Wikipedia's IP block entirely, in which case you just might have to use the vpn if that method works.

    Lance, thanks for showing interest in my problem.
    I think, like i feared, they are filtering the IPs. Anyway, is it possible to ask the routeur to go through an outside proxy for those IPs?

    I don't know much about proxies, but if you have a vpn already (using openvpn) and are using a more recent version of tomato shibby, you might be able to do selective vpn routing for that domain and any others you're having troubles with. You would leave it on all the time, but just have it working with those trouble domains, and leaving your other traffic alone.
