Regular DNS resolutions failures with error code 5 status: REFUSED



Using 4.1.0

Three connections are configured on the Kinetic : via Ethernet (provider), via Wireless ISP and a WireGuard connection (used for internet).

On the default policy, the Wireguard connectivity is the default one, followed by the Ethernet and the Wireless ISP.


I have created another connection priority (labelled 'direct') that only contains the Ethernet connection.


I have configured my computer to use the 'direct' profile via a policy Binding. The DHCP lease offered defines the DNS server as the kinetic router itself.


I have very frequent DNS resolution errors as soon as my computer is not using the Default Connection Policy. 

Here is an example of rejected DNS resolution.  I did not have configured the "filter mode" (internet safety).

Also the 'DNS Configuration' screen has several issues to populate the DHCP-obtained from my ISP Ethernet (bouygues). 



What can I do to investigate ?

I think I've understood the issue. 


The DNS provided from the DHCP's ISP are not populated on the "internet safety" / DNS Configuration (server list) when the internet connection is not set as primary.

I had to enter the IP addresses manually.
