#24567 closed defect (duplicate)

Description (last modified by teor)

Recently, DNSPort is way unstable. I think some exit nodes are returning wrong IP address(pointed to some hosting provider) or blocking DNS request.

Can anyone experiment on this automatically?

this is likely about #21394 fixed in the latest releases

Arthur already does test exit relays for DNS failures

Can we close this ticket?

We believe this is fixed in Tor,,, and
Please give operators a few weeks to upgrade.

Please feel free to reopen this ticket if the problem persists into 2018.
