    My app can connect with Oauth to Gmail with the Chilkat plugin which works fine. One user is using "DNS over https" from Cloudflare and has connection problems:

    connectSocket:
    connect_ipv6_or_ipv4:
    getAddressInfo:
    Failed to get host address info. (4)
    gai_error: 8
    hostOrIpAddr: imap.gmail.com
    port: 993
    --getAddressInfo
    getAddressInfo failed.

    • -connect_ipv6_or_ipv4
    • -connectSocket
    • -connectImplicitSsl

    ConnectFailReason: DNS lookup failed

    • -connect2
    • -socket2Connect

    failReason: 0
    --connectToImapServer
    connect failed.

    Their documentation at https://developers.cloudflare.com/1.1.1.1/dns-over-https/cloudflared-proxy/ doesn't make it really clear what I need to do to make my app support "DNS over https". A proxy? Does anyone have any experience with something like this?

    I wrote a class to CloudFlare's DNS system. https://bitbucket.org/nocturnalcodingmonkeys/xocfdns . the links on my website are broken (the point to the wrong pages - big mistake on my part). but the bitbucket pages are correct.

    if I wasnt leaving to go to the Xojo UG meeting right now, I would fix the broken links.

    if you have any questions about the classes, let me know. either email me or PM me here.

    thanks
