Dnsmasq is a lightweight DNS forwarder designed to provide DNS (domain name) services to a small network where using BIND would be overkill. Its upstream DNS servers can be automatically configured by PPP or DHCP and it can serve the names of local machines which are not in the global DNS. It can integrate with the ISC DHCP daemon to serve the names of local machines which are configured using DHCP. Dnsmasq is ideal for networks behind NAT routers and connected via modem, ISDN, ADSL, or cable-modem connections.
