[Conclusion] Providing DHCP and DNS services with DNSMasq
Many thanks to Tixy, who answered all my questions, I now compile it into
a big blog,
Providing DHCP and DNS services with DNSMasq
To use DNSmasq to provide DNS, DHCP, tftpd and ad blocking to my home
The dnsmasq can be used as both dhchp and dns server. This is ideal for a
home network. The benefits are,
* I no longer need to fiddle with my router web interface to give
fixed dhcp leases to my boxes — I just have to maintain a local dnsmasq
conf file on the dnsmasq server.
* It also provides tftpd service and ad blocking out of the box.
Setup dnsmasq local configuration
Configure Static DHCP IP Addresses
Configure the dnsmasq server using the static IP
Enable adblocking configuration
Get Ad Block List
Create an ad block server
Let ether card get the setting automatically?
why my static IP configuration doesn’t work
Why a separated ad block server?

Thanks, and better yet, you don't need to maintain the black hole listing
yourself, see above.
Thanks again, Tixy.
