I want a simple system especially for managing a lot of clients in a
LAN, it works in schools and is administrated by teachers who don't want
to first study man pages etc before changing such stuff like the IP
address belonging to a MAC address, p.e.
> How many computers are in your network?
More than 200 machines which are owned by the school, and (presumably) a
lot more than 200 private machines, like smartphones.
> What is the error from thunderbird? Is it an "IP"-error or an DNS-
I have to ask the colleague who tries to run the system, may need some
time (that is a job which shouldn't disturb "normal" working ...)
> How is your routing table? What stands in /etc/resolv.conf?
Mailing with Thunderbird works with the lines
The routing table and the contents of "/etc/resolv.conf" are not changed
for the case "without any interface line" or "with only some interface
lines"; I may not believe that changing the "interface=" lines in the
dnsmasq configuration is related to the contents of these files.
