It'll be in the router that connects you to the internet most probably. Then, as long as *your* dnsmasq is running in one of the machines on the LAN and is configured to provide DHCP (not the default, you have to uncomment the 'dhcp-range' line in dnsmasq.conf) you should find that everything will start working as you want. Machines will need to be rebooted (or wait a long[ish] time) to start using dnsmasq. If the above doesn't work then keep asking questions, with more detailed information about your set-up, and I'm sure answers will be forthcoming. -- Chris Green _______________________________________________ Dnsmasq-discuss mailing list Dnsmasqfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.thekelleys.org.uk/mailman/listinfo/dnsmasq-discuss
