DNScrypt-proxy 1.6.2, new configuration

The latest version of DNScrypt-proxy does not use anymore a single configuration file (/etc/conf.d/dnscrypt-proxy) but instead completely relies on systemd. Configuration is now split in two different files. [root@arch ~]# cat /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/dnscrypt-proxy.service --- [Unit] Description=DNSCrypt client proxy Requires=dnscrypt-proxy.socket [Install] Also=dnscrypt-proxy.socket WantedBy=multi-user.target [Service] Type=simple NonBlocking=true ExecStart=/usr/bin/dnscrypt-proxy \ --resolver-address=185.97.7.7:27015 \ --provider-name=2.dnscrypt-cert.fvz-rec-de-fra-01.dnsrec.meo.ws \ --provider-key=9FCC:EB74:6856:238D:AC57:428B:DE4F:D9C6:E736:5370:E9F9:5415:3BD3:6EBE:A8C2:FAFE \ --user=nobody …and… [root@arch ~]# cat /etc/systemd/system/dnscrypt-proxy.socket --- [Unit] Description=dnscrypt-proxy listening socket After=network.target [Socket] ListenStream=127.0.0.2:53 ListenDatagram=127.0.0.2:53 [Install] WantedBy=sockets.target
