interface-order - resolvconf configuration file
The file /etc/resolvconf/interface-order
is used to control the order in
which resolvconf nameserver information records are processed by those
resolvconf update scripts that consult this file. (The name of the file is apt
because a resolvconf nameserver information record is named after the
interface with which it is associated.)
The file contains a sequence of shell glob patterns, one per line. The position
of a record in the order is the point at which its name first matches a
Patterns may not contain whitespace, slashes or initial dots or tildes. Blank
lines and lines beginning with a '#' are ignored.
Resolvconf update scripts in /etc/resolvconf/update.d/
that consult this
file include the current default versions of dnsmasq
. (Actually they don't read the file directly; they call the
utility program /lib/resolvconf/list-records
which lists records in the
specified order and omits the names of empty records.)
# Use nameservers on the loopback interface first.
# Next use records for Ethernet interfaces
# Next use records for Wi-Fi interfaces
# Next use records for PPP interfaces
# Last use other interfaces
