    initial v1  
    11I enabled it to prevent DNS leaks when there is IPv6 connectivity on Windows 7. I've observed that on scenarios with an ISP-provided DNS server that has an IPv6 address, windows 7 prefers sending DNS requests to that one instead of the DNS server inside the tunnel (this one has only IPv4 address). Since the block-outside-dns also blocks IPv6 requests I wanted to give it a try.

     3To clarify: Described behaviour happens under IPv4 only connectivity. Didn't have a chance to try on IPv4, IPv6.

    35So should I stay away from enabling block-outside-dns on Windows 7?
