Re: proxychains DNS leaks stopped

Are you saying that the "proxy_dns" option in the proxychains.conf is in fact leaking DNS request?
from the proxychains.conf file:
# Proxy DNS requests - no leak for DNS data

I thought it would resolve against the specified SOCKS 4/5 proxy.  Is this not happening?

line of the proxyresolv script in the proxychains package, which reads,

dig $1 @$DNS_SERVER +tcp | awk '/A.+[0-9]+\.[0-9]+\.[0-9]/{print $5;}'

with the following line:

env LD_PRELOAD="" tor-resolve $1

That seems to stop the leaks, but it still leaves tor complaining that
it was given an IP address instead of a host+domainname in the SOCKS5
connection.  (I realize that this method also means that tor-resolve
will be used exclusively for name-to-address resolutions, instead of
whatever list of proxies may currently be the active list for proxychains
to use, but it does what I need for now.)
