Hi I have added a hosts(5)-style file to dnsmasq with 'addn-hosts='. All entries point to the same IP address. This works as expected, querying this dnsmasq instance for any of the entries results in a response with said IP address. Actually I'd like queries for any of these hosts to result in an NXDOMAIN response. According to my understanding the bogus-nxdomain option serves exactly this purpose, though setting bogus-nxdomain=<my special IP address> doesn't work. I still get the IP address instead of NXDOMAIN. I suspected that maybe bogus-nxdomain does not work in concjunction with 'addn-hosts'-supplied data but wasn't sure. To validate that I am actually using the feature correctly I have added another bogus-nxdomain entry with an IP address of a well-known host on the internet and got an NXDOMAIN response from dnsmasq, as expected so I guess bogus-nxdomain and addn-hosts don't work in conjunction with each other.
Questions: (1) Is this known/expected behavior? (2) Can I somehow achieve what I desire? I guess a workaround for my issue is to work with two instances of dnsmasq. One serves the content of the addn-hosts file to the other over DNS, the second instance then does bogus-nxdomain on those. Even though I guess this would work (I haven't tried yet) I'd like to avoid that approach if anybody has a good idea what else i could do. -Alex _______________________________________________ Dnsmasq-discuss mailing list Dnsmasqfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.thekelleys.org.uk/mailman/listinfo/dnsmasq-discuss
