You can set a DNS local server, working as cache. It is now even easier
than it was.

Dnsmasq is now installed by default, just use it.

My 24/7 box is still on 11.4. Dnsmasq was not installed.

In "/etc/dnsmasq.conf" tell dnsmasq to ask the router or isp or whatever.


Seems simple enough, until I look at the default /etc/dnsmasq.conf file,
where I see only this example that seems like the closest equivalent to
your suggestion:


What are the "/" and "localnet" about? Searching through the man page,
search string localnet was not found. There is no separate man page for
dnsmasq.conf. Maybe localnet would have been better expressed as
<localnet> or <domain>?

If I wanted to use two Google servers instead of router IP, bypassing
resolv.conf, would I put both IPs on one line, or two, and if on one,
separated how?
