Over the weekend I installed Dnsmasq on an Ubuntu 19.10 VM on my server under Unraid. The config seems fine, but its often inconsistent. I’m just looking to use it for DNS on my local network so I don’t need to remember all of the IP addresses associated with my other servers and devices. I have a laptop and a desktop both running Windows 10. My router is configured for the Dnsmasq VM to be the primary IPV4 DNS server with no secondary.
# DNS configuration no-dhcp-interface=enp1s0 #port=53 listen-address=192.168.5.232 domain-needed bogus-priv strict-order expand-hosts domain=nexus.com local=/nexus.com/ no-resolv no-poll server=184.108.40.206 server=220.127.116.11

While on the subject, I’m also getting inconsistencies with my SMB shares on the Unraid server to the Windows 10 machines. Sometimes it works, other times it can’t find the networked drive.
