Re: Windows Server

DoH being mingled in with https means they need to block a (huge) list of alternative DoH servers.

Bet it is a lot shorter than the list of adware/malware sites that corporate firewalls currently block...

The real problem with everything over HTTPS is that it effectively moves functionality that is currently handled by lower layers of the network stack into the application with all the processing overheads and security ramifications of doing system stuff in user space.
