setting up dnsmasq on raspberry pi nmap ports dns

Local DNS dnsmasq

Use case

I wanted to have an outside domain name resolve to a computer inside my local private network. I am tyring out to handle the resolution. The DNS resolves fine outside of my local network, yet locally the fqdn will not resolve. To enable this, a local dns needs to handle the request, routing to the local server.

This is where the raspberry pi dns comes in. I'm running Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch), a Debian variant.


I have been unable to get dnsmasq to start correctly on reboot. Nothing stands out in daemon.log. sudo service dnsmasq status shows one particular line that is different from the status of a reboot vs a manual service restart:

Run ssh tunnel locally:

enable ssh on raspberry pi raspian fresh install etcher OS X Mac network cable direct connect
  • after image is flashed using Etcher, cd /Volumes/boot.
  • Then add ssh file to root. touch ssh.
  • connect network cable between os x computer and raspberry pi. boot the raspberry pi.
  • wait a minute.
  • then ssh pi@raspberrypi.local

That's it. No need for a screen, keyboard or any other device to get into the pi. :)

You can’t perform that action at this time.
