I installed unbound and then i did disable the dns on dnsmasq but still no luck.
This is what i did:
opkg install unbound-daemon
# Enable DNS encryption
uci set unbound.fwd_google.enabled="1"
uci set unbound.fwd_google.fallback="0"
uci commit unbound
And disabled dns role so:
uci set dhcp.@dnsmasq.localuse="0"
uci set dhcp.@dnsmasq.port="0"
uci commit dhcp
What else could be wrong?
What's the expected outcome?
That i do see TLS enabled when i run check-in like cloudflare help page.
I followed this guide to get unbound working with dnsmasq. I am using the basic serial method. You might want to revert your settings and start over installing all of the unbound packages for luci and the control package for logging and statistics. What made it work reliably for me was using a resolver like Cloudflare or Google and making sure my config files redirected DNS traffic properly.

# Unbound Recursive DNS Server with UCI
<!-- markdownlint-disable -->
## Unbound Description
[Unbound](https://www.unbound.net/) is a validating, recursive, and caching DNS resolver. The C implementation of Unbound is developed and maintained by [NLnet Labs](https://www.nlnetlabs.nl/). It is based on ideas and algorithms taken from a java prototype developed by Verisign labs, Nominet, Kirei and ep.net. Unbound is designed as a set of modular components, so that also DNSSEC (secure DNS) validation and stub-resolvers (that do not run as a server, but are linked into an application) are easily possible.
## Package Overview
OpenWrt default build uses [dnsmasq](http://www.thekelleys.org.uk/dnsmasq/docs/dnsmasq-man.html) for DNS forwarding and DHCP. With a forward only resolver, dependence on the upstream recursors may be cause for concern. They are often provided by the ISP, and some users have switched to public DNS providers. Either way may result in problems due to performance, "snoop-vertising", hijacking (MiM), and other causes. Running a recursive resolver or resolver capable of TLS may be a solution.
Unbound may be useful on consumer grade embedded hardware. It is fully DNSSEC and TLS capable. It is _intended_ to be a recursive resolver only. NLnet Labs [NSD](https://www.nlnetlabs.nl/projects/nsd/) is _intended_ for the authoritative task. This is different than [ISC Bind](https://www.isc.org/downloads/bind/) and its inclusive functions. Unbound configuration effort and memory consumption may be easier to control. A consumer could have their own recursive resolver with 8/64 MB router, and remove potential issues from forwarding resolvers outside of their control.
This package builds on Unbounds capabilities with OpenWrt UCI. Not every Unbound option is in UCI, but rather, UCI simplifies the combination of related options. Unbounds native options are bundled and balanced within a smaller set of choices. Options include resources, DNSSEC, access control, and some TTL tweaking. The UCI also provides an escape option and works at the raw `unbound.conf` level.
## HOW TO: Ad Blocking
The UCI scripts will work with [net/adblock](https://github.com/openwrt/packages/blob/master/net/adblock/files/README.md), if it is installed and enabled. Its all detected and integrated automatically. In brief, the adblock scripts create distinct local-zone files that are simply included in the unbound conf file during UCI generation. If you don't want this, then disable adblock or reconfigure adblock to not send these files to Unbound.
A few tweaks may be needed to enhance the realiability and effectiveness. Ad Block option for delay time may need to be set for upto one minute (adb_triggerdelay), because of boot up race conditions with interfaces calling Unbound restarts. Also many smart devices (TV, microwave, or refigerator) will also use public DNS servers either as a bypass or for certain connections in general. If you wish to force exclusive DNS to your router, then you will need a firewall rule for example:
Seems the DoH proxy package's a lot easier to setup....
That one is i just tested it 2 min ago and that one works nice.
Unbound for some reason really dont want to work here i kinda gave up as DOH works.
Appreciated but it really isnt working for me and i cant find out why, as DOH works i gave up on TLS.
