dnsmasq can't work


I'm trying to setup dnsmasq but I couldn't figure out how to recognize my local ip stations associate with hostnames. It won't recognize it.


I own a domain name :

mydomain.com

I have 3 stations with following IPs :

station 1 (with 2 NICs): 192.10.0.1 (local) and IP from my ISP assigned
station 2: 192.10.0.2
station 3: 192.10.0.3

I use my station 1 as a gateway to Internet
DHCP can assign correctly the range of IP to my stations.

In my /etc/hosts :

127.0.0.1 localhost
192.10.0.1 st1 st1.mydomain.com
192.10.0.2 st2 st2.mydomain.com
192.10.0.3 st3 st3.mydomain.com


Here's the setup of my dnsmasq.conf:

interface=eth0
expand-hosts
dhcp-range=192.10.0.1,192.10.0.10
domain=mydomain.com

dhcp-host=00:01:AF:C6:EE:0E,192.10.0.1
dhcp-host=00:22:C1:EE:0E:FF,192.10.0.2
dhcp-host=00:20:69:56:88:99,192.10.0.3

after I restarted dnsmasq, I got this msg in /var/log/syslog

dnsmasq[10261]: ignoring nameserver 192.10.0.1 - local interface


What's that mean?

First off, you shouldn't be using 192.10.X.X ip addresses. That aside, you can't use DHCP to assign the IP of the interface it is listening on.
