NextDNS and tethering via iOS hotspot on iPhone


  • NextDNS account linked to tailscale (Override local DNS is “on”)
  • iPhone tailscale is active
  • Macbook has tailscale active and is tethered to iPhone via personal hotspot

I expected the Macbook either gets the DNS config from iPhone (NextDNS?) or from “itself” via tailscale menubar app. But it seems like in the above setup DNS is not working (?).

Anyone experienced something similar or knows what might be going on?
