Configuring DNSMasq[edit | edit source]
An example configuration file is found in
/usr/local/etc/dnsmasq.conf.example. I find this is useful to keep as a master copy as it’s well commented, so the main configuration file can be tidied up.
cd /usr/local/etc cp dnsmasq.conf.example dnsmasq.conf ls dns* dnsmasq.conf dnsmasq.conf.example
