Client.Timeout Exceeded Errors
reading time 2 minutes
CLI v3.31.0 Required
The solution recommended in this article requires a CLI version of v3.31.0 and above.
If the Doppler CLI exits with an error message containing
Client.Timeout exceeded while awaiting headers, you're likely unable to resolve the IP address of
api.doppler.com. This can be caused by your WiFi router (e.g. Google WiFi), VPNs, proxies, and other network egress restrictions.
To resolve this issue, you can instruct the CLI to use a different DNS resolver than the one provided by your OS. This can be enabled in two ways.
Option 1: Use a Flag
This flag must be specified on every invocation.
doppler run --enable-dns-resolver -- your-app
Option 2: Use an Environment Variable
If you're still experiencing issues, add the
--debug flag to your command and get in touch via our Community Forum or our in-product support.
Once enabled, you can configure the DNS resolver with the following flags.
|address to use for DNS resolution|
|protocol to use for DNS resolution|
|max dns lookup duration|
