  • sudo apt-get install dnsmasq
  • It will automatically start up and take up port 53 (DNS). To verify this, type “sudo netstat -tulnp”

I didn’t really end up doing anything with the program, but you can edit /etc/dnsmasq.conf to set your DHCP lease range (e.g.,, 12h). Then, you could set it up to use /etc/hosts as your DNS.
