"dnsmasq is a lightweight, open-source DNS forwarder and DHCP server. In this article we go through how to prepare the system in order to run dnsmasq and also how to configure the latter as a caching-only DNS server. A configuration file is also provided as a drop-in replacement for the default dnsmasq.conf that ships with your system. dnsmasq is available in most Linux distributions. This article was written while using CentOS, so it is safe to say that it also fully covers RHEL, Fedora and generally the whole Red Hat family of operating systems and possibly Novell's SLES and OpenSUSE. Small modifications of the invoked commands may be needed for Debian, Ubuntu and other systems.
