Xubuntu 15.10 using Ethernet
From my understanding,
/var/run/dnsmasq/resolv.conf should contain the nameservers used by dnsmasq to resolve addresses and is configured by a script called by network-manager. In my case, the file contains only
nameserver 127.0.1.1 which doesn't seem right. My IPv4 address of the only network interface on my machine is static and the IPv6 auto-configured. In both cases my router is set as my DNS server. There are the contents
# Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8) # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN nameserver 127.0.0.1 # Generated by NetworkManager nameserver 192.168.1.1 nameserver fe80::1%eth0
dig command shows
;; SERVER: 127.0.0.1#53(127.0.0.1) indicating it used dnsmasq for resolution but then what does dnsmasq use?
Note that name resolution is working just fine my questions are whether this setup would break with a reboot and whether IPv6 name resolution works at all. Thanks.
