    Quite frequently while browsing, I get:

    HAVP – DNS error
      HAVP

    A DNS error occurred
    while opening the page

    Usually (but not always) it seems to happen during times of heavier usage, and usually (but not always) it goes away if I refresh. I’m using the proxy for the blacklist feature. DNS is set to use Google’s (8.8.8.8 & 4.4.4.4). Any suggestions?

    This is not the 1st time when I hear about issues with using Google DNS.
    You may want to try to replace your servers with OpenDNS and see if the problem goes away.

    Same behavior in my case. I am using OpenDNS.

    LAN—>local_bind9_DNS_Cache(OpenDNS)—>Zeroshell—>ADSL_Router—>INTERNET

    The only factor I have noticed is that it happens usually during heavy usage (high loads) but I still haven’t figure out the exact reason.

    I do not use ZS for DNS for now, requests are forwarded to a local bind9 server which in turn requests from OpenDNS (208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220). But still I have the same error randomly.

    A year later, still the same problem but worse, nobody has any ideas?

    I wouldn’t use the proxy at all but I need to block high bandwidth sites, but it’s getting maddening.

    Hello

    Seems you are using wrong DNS servers.

    Google DNS servers are: 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

    Also try some other DNS servers, for example your ISP ones.

    8.8.4.4, yes, my mistake.

    With my ISP’s servers it was worse.

    When I get the chance I’m going to try Dansguardian for content filtering so I can turn the HAVP proxy off.
