Hello Paulo,

I did a quick test but it seems it does cache the responses.

It would help if you could show us dig query result

$ dig -p 8600 @127.0.0.1 consul.service.consul

It depends on what TTL is used for replies from Consul server. If TTL in
second column is 0, it should not be cached by dnsmasq. You would have
to change consul service in that case.

Or use min-cache-ttl=120 or higher value. But that TTL might have good
reason, it would be better to fix the service.
