I have spent the past two days trying every option and reading every man
page, discussions here, google searches, etc.
My situation is this.
I am running Snow Leopard latest 10.6.4
I am connected to the internet via a DSL router that assigns IPs with DHCP.
I am only concerned about one machine on the network.. mine
For example: my router ip/gateway is 192.168.1.254
The machine I am on is 192.168.1.64
I have a /etc/hosts file that is huge.
I want to keep the original /etc/hosts and set a additional hosts file with
all my blocks. I know I can point dnsmasq to read that additional file.
I installed Macports. I installed dnsmasq
I tried EVERYTHING I have read. Nothing works. I get:
failed to bind listening socket Address already in use
failed to create listening socket Address already in use
It seems like it would be a simple setup
What exactly do I need t do.
1. Does my router firewall need to open ports for dnsmasq?
2. I have 127.0.0.1 in my hosts and resolv.conf
3. Do I need to change something in Preferences, Networks?
4. What options do I set in dnsmasq.conf? I have tried SO many
FYI: I am NOT an admin or programmer. I know enough only to be dangerous...
ANY help would be much appreciated.
Thanks so much!
