I'm trying to set my Ubuntu 12.04 DNS server up so that it temporarily uses tunlr's DNS servers. I'm using dnsmasq to provide DNS services to my LAN. I also have resolvconf running (though I hate it as it just seems to make things more complicated).
I can't seem to get it working and I can't work out what DNS server is being used. When I log onto the DNS server and do a nslookup it says it's using 127.0.0.1:
But my interfaces file says to use different DNS servers:
$ nslookup www.bbc.co.uk
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
### This is for Tunlr DNS for DNS geo-dodging eg BBC iPlayer, Hulu etc
dns-nameservers 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52
It's all so complicated with resolvconf, resolv.conf and dnsmasq I can't work out how to configure it the way I want. Can anyone please advise?
