[Dnsmasq-discuss] resolving server's hostname

dc10b is the dnsmasq server

I am using a modified version of this:
https://anonscm.debian.org/git/debconf-video/ansible.git/tree/roles/dhcp-server

I haven't checked in the mods yet because things are still a little wonky.
git diff ... skimmed, don't see anything that would affect dnsmasq.

juser at dc10b:~$ cat /etc/dnsmasq.d/local.conf
## Ansible managed

interface=eth-local
domain=lca2017.lan
dhcp-range=10.20.1.10,10.20.1.254,6h
dhcp-option-force=210,/srv/tftp/
dhcp-boot=pxelinux.0
dhcp-authoritative
enable-tftp
tftp-root=/srv/tftp


Hmm, on an openwtt ap running dnsmasq:

root at tpap:~# cat /etc/resolv.conf
search lan
nameserver 127.0.0.1

root at tpap:~# cat /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost

root at tpap:~# nslookup tpap
Server:    127.0.0.1
Address 1: 127.0.0.1 localhost
Name:      tpap
Address 1: 192.168.1.2 tpap.lan
