Meraki blocking Google DNS?

Hi Everyone


This morning I've had users complain about slow / no internet. Upon reviewing the event log I am seeing that Google DNS has been categorised by Meraki as proxy avoidance. Is anyone else having issues?

Isn't that :443 (and not :53) the newish Chrome secure DNS thing? I know it has been problematic for various reasons and this appears to be another..


I'll check some of my orgs to see if I am getting the same, but have not had any trouble tickets or noticed it yet.

Interesting one. Thanks for sharing.  Will take a look through some of our Orgs

Disable DNS over HTTPS in Chrome.

Here to help

We're getting this and DNS over HTTPS is disabled.   How can I see more detail on these events?  It's causing so many that some events aren't even being logged.
