The --server option makes this possible.

You'll have to reorganise your dnsmasq configuration so that all queries are sent to an upstream server defined with --server rather than relying on servers that dnsmasq finds in resolv.conf (or equivalent), though. _______________________________________________ Dnsmasq-discuss mailing list Dnsmasqemail@example.com http://lists.thekelleys.org.uk/mailman/listinfo/dnsmasq-discuss
