Summary: A lightweight caching nameserver
Dnsmasq is lightweight, easy to configure DNS forwarder and DHCP server. It
is designed to provide DNS and, optionally, DHCP, to a small network. It can
serve the names of local machines which are not in the global DNS. The DHCP
server integrates with the DNS server and allows machines with DHCP-allocated
addresses to appear in the DNS with names configured either in each host or
in a central configuration file. Dnsmasq supports static and dynamic DHCP
leases and BOOTP for network booting of diskless machines.
