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 following:-
		   lo lo[0-9]*

     dynamic_order
	     These interfaces will be processed	next, unless they have a met-
	     ric.  If unset, defaults to the following:-
		   tap[0-9]* tun[0-9]* ng[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 alteration.

SUBSCRIBER OPTIONS
     openresolv	ships with subscribers for the name servers dnsmasq(8),
     named(8), pdnsd(8)	and unbound(8).	 Each subscriber can create configura-
     tion files	which should be	included in in the subscribers main configura-
     tion 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 nameservers 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	spe-
	     cific 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
