Answered: "Keyweb AG" server found in DNS Leak Test

I am new to this service, and the first thing I did while connected to the VPN was to perform a DNS Leak Test. I used the DNS Leak Test website: https://www.dnsleaktest.com/
https://www.dnsleaktest.com/
Anyhow, after the test had completed, I got a rather peculiar result. The test showed a second server, other than the one I was connected to, called "Keyweb AG". Here's a screenshot of what I got:

It appears to be a DNS leak. I have the Firewall and DNS Leak settings set to always being on:

Hopefully, one of the staff members can explain what exactly is going on. I feel this shouldn't be happening.

217.114.218.18 is erfurt.perfect-privacy.com and 104.237.193.26 is chicago.perfect-privacy.com - so that is no DNS leak. The ivpn leak test obviously doesn't know which servers belong to Perfect Privacy.

I guess the reason will be that you are using a secondary Firewall on your PC right?
PP is using the standard windows firewall settings. that means if you are using another optional firewall software which will prevent from setting up new rules to your windiws built in firewall it wont work out.

you have to switch off the other firewall (kaspersky etc..)
reset windows firewall to standard
start PP manager

otherwise the PP manager can not write firewall settings to your windows firewall!

Well, not trying to be bellicose, but it's more along the lines of you not knowing how the DNS leak test works. See, it uses what's called a "reverse DNS lookup" in order to find information on the ISP. If you don't know what a reverse DNS lookup is, see here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse_DNS_lookup
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse_DNS_lookup
What they displayed was simply the information from the reverse DNS lookup. If these servers belong to you, then you should probably update this information because every reverse DNS lookup is going to display this information.

No, we don't set reverse lookups for a good reason: Many services block VPN by DNS.

I fully realize this. I was simply responding to your previous post. You stated that "....leak test obviously doesn't know which servers belong to Perfect Privacy." I was simply explaining why this statement was not entirely true.
