[Dnsmasq-discuss] DNS from dhcp-host while client is offline

Hi Olaf,

yeah I too settled for a sed command that transforms a dhcp-hosts file 
into an addn-hosts file.

I maintain the main information in the dhcp-hosts file and then I run 
the sed command.

Thank you,
Alkis

Maybe you asking for this:

    dnsdomain=home.arpa
    hostname=esprimo
    MAC=00:a0:d1:c8:8e:cb
    ipv4=172.16.0.6
    ipv6=fd00:172:16::02a0:d1ff:fec8:8ecb

    tee -a dnsmasq.conf <<_EOF_
    host-record=${hostname}.${dnsdomain},${ipv4},${ipv6},123
    dhcp-host=${MAC},id:*,set:${hostname},${ipv4},${hostname},216000
    _EOF_

Olaf
