Secure DNS cannot run on this network
« on: October 31, 2016, 07:28:58 PM »
Hello!

I have Avast Internet Security Protection and the security checks (smart scan) indicate that there is no problem with the security of my PC.
Nevertheless, the central screen of Avast mentions that "Secure DNS cannot run on this network". I cannot understand why this happens. What can I do in order to fix this problem?

I want to underline that my PC functions properly and there are no problems with my Internet connection


Thank you!

Does anybody know what is happening?

Unfortunately, I continue having the same problem and I am afraid that this problem of avast may be dangerous for my PC.

There is not much we can say if you don't provide details.
This is like saying to a mechanic that there is something wrong with your car but not even giving a clue on what is wrong.
- Could be you don't like the color anymore
- Heater is not working
- It consumes more fuel than expected
etc.

What OS/SP ?
What exact version of avast ?
Any other security (related) software installed ? (or was there)
How is the network setup ?
etc.

Dear Marid,

There's  no reason to worry about your PC. Here's some more information about Secure DNS: https://www.avast.com/nl-nl/faq.php?article=AVKB188 (english version)
I've turned it off years ago because it disrupts my internetconnection.
