NAME

        interface-order - resolvconf configuration file
 

DESCRIPTION

        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 pattern.
 
        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 bind, dnsmasq, pdnsd
        and libc.  (Actually they don’t read the file directly; they  call  the
        utility program /lib/resolvconf/list-records which lists records in the
        specified order.)
 

EXAMPLE

        # /etc/resolvconf/interface-order
        # Use nameservers on the loopback interface first.
        lo*
        # Next use records for Ethernet interfaces
        eth*
        # Next use records for Wi-Fi interfaces
        wlan*
        # Next use records for PPP interfaces
        ppp*
        # Last use other interfaces
        *
