RESOLVCONF.CONF(5)		     System Manager's Manual		       RESOLVCONF.CONF(5)

NAME
     resolvconf.conf -- resolvconf configuration file

DESCRIPTION
     resolvconf.conf is the configuration file for resolvconf(8).  The resolvconf.conf file is a
     shell script that is sourced by resolvconf(8), meaning that resolvconf.conf must contain
     valid shell commands.  Listed below are the standard resolvconf.conf variables that may be
     set.

     After updating this file, you may wish to run resolvconf -u to apply the new configuration.

RESOLVCONF OPTIONS
     interface_order
	     These interfaces will always be processed first.  If unset, defaults to the follow-
	     ing:-
		   lo lo[0-9]*

     dynamic_order
	     These interfaces will be processed next, unless they have a metric.  If unset,
	     defaults to the following:-
		   tap[0-9]* tun[0-9]* vpn vpn[0-9]* ppp[0-9]* ippp[0-9]*

     search_domains
	     Prepend search domains to the dynamically generated list.

     search_domains_append
	     Append search domains to the dynamically generated list.

     name_servers
	     Prepend name servers to the dynamically generated list.  You should set this to
	     127.0.0.1 if you use a local name server other than libc.

     name_servers_append
	     Append name servers to the dynamically generated list.

     private_interfaces
	     These interfaces name servers will only be queried for the domains listed in their
	     resolv.conf.  Useful for VPN domains.  This is equivalent to the resolvconf -p
	     option.

     state_dir
	     Override the default state directory of /var/run/resolvconf.  This should not be
	     changed once resolvconf is in use unless the old directory is copied to the new one.

LIBC OPTIONS
     The following variables affect resolv.conf(5) directly:-

     resolv_conf
	     Defaults to /etc/resolv.conf if not set.

     resolv_conf_options
	     A list of libc resolver options, as specified in resolv.conf(5).

     resolv_conf_passthrough
	     When set to YES the latest resolv.conf is written to resolv_conf without any alter-
	     ation.

     resolv_conf_sortlist
	     A libc resolver sortlist, as specified in resolv.conf(5).

SUBSCRIBER OPTIONS
     openresolv ships with subscribers for the name servers dnsmasq(8), named(8), pdnsd(8) and
     unbound(8).  Each subscriber can create configuration files which should be included in in
     the subscribers main configuration file.

     dnsmasq_conf
	     This file tells dnsmasq which nameservers to use for specific domains.

     dnsmasq_resolv
	     This file tells dnsmasq which nameservers to use for global lookups.

	     Example resolvconf.conf for dnsmasq:
		   nameservers=127.0.0.1
		   dnsmasq_conf=/etc/dnsmasq-conf.conf
		   dnsmasq_resolv=/etc/dnsmasq-resolv.conf

	     Example dnsmasq.conf:
		   listen-address=127.0.0.1
		   conf-file=/etc/dnsmasq-conf.conf
		   resolv-file=/etc/dnsmasq-resolv.conf

     named_options
	     Include this file in the named options block.  This file tells named which name-
	     servers to use for global lookups.

     named_zones
	     Include this file in the named global scope, after the options block.  This file
	     tells named which nameservers to use for specific domains.

	     Example resolvconf.conf for named:
		   nameservers=127.0.0.1
		   named_options=/etc/named-options.conf
		   named_zones=/etc/named-zones.conf

	     Example named.conf:
		   options {
			listen-on { 127.0.0.1; };
			include /etc/named-options.conf;
		   };
		   include /etc/named-zones.conf;

     pdnsd_conf
	     This is the main pdnsd configuration file which we modify to add our forward domains
	     to.  If this variable is not set then we rely on the pdnsd configuration file setup
	     to read pdnsd_resolv as documented below.

     pdnsd_resolv
	     This file tells pdnsd about global nameservers.  If this variable is not set then
	     it's written to pdnsd_conf.

	     Example resolvconf.conf for pdnsd:
		   nameservers=127.0.0.1
		   pdnsd_conf=/etc/pdnsd.conf
		   # pdnsd_resolv=/etc/pdnsd-resolv.conf

	     Example pdnsd.conf:
		   global {
			server_ip = 127.0.0.1;
			status_ctl = on;
		   }
		   server {
			# A server definition is required, even if emtpy.
			label="empty";
			proxy_only=on;
			# file="/etc/pdnsd-resolv.conf";
		   }

     unbound_conf
	     This file tells unbound about specific and global nameservers.

	     Example resolvconf.conf for unbound:
		   nameservers=127.0.0.1
		   unbound_conf=/etc/unbound-resolvconf.conf

	     Example unbound.conf:
		   include: /etc/unbound-resolvconf.conf
