Description

is misleading as it supports both DHCP and DNS. When you turn them both off, it continues to run.

Since this is actually dnsmasq service, shouldn't we list it as such. Having DHCP and DNS checkboxes in the Network->Settings tab is sufficient for turning them on and off.

Makes more sense to list the actual service running.

History

#1 Updated by cpg almost 7 years ago

i propose we remove this server. turning off both the dns and dhcp servers makes it essentially stopped.

however, having a DNSMasq server without the user not knowing much is an invitation to stop it. this has really bad consequences.

so maybe removing it from the servers tab altogether is best?

#2 Updated by bigfoot65 almost 7 years ago

Agreed. Having the option to stop DHCP and DNS in Network settings tab is sufficient in my opinion.

The DNS Server is still listed in the Servers tab. Recommend it be removed in future platform updates.
