Default How to use dnsmasq.conf.add

Hello,

I have the following in a dnsmasq.conf.add file on my desktop:

server/netflix.com/184.169.139.227
server/theplatform.com/184.169.139.227

Three questions:

1) How do I get this onto my RT-N16? I have already set up JFFS in the admin settings. I have tried Putty SFTP but was unable to connect.

2) Do I need to modify permissions for the .add file once I have it on the RT-N16?

3) Can I disable JFFS once I have the file on the RT-N16? I would need to re-enable it if I ever needed to modify the file, I guess.

Thanks,

Tim

Simplest way if you aren't very skilled at using Linux is to put them on a USB disk, then while connected through telnet you can copy them in their final location.

Just make sure the file is executable:

Quote:
chmod a+rx /jffs/configs/dnsmasq.conf.add

No. The idea of JFFS is to create a partition stored inside the router's flash storage to put scripts in. If you disable JFFS, it will disable the partition, meaning the firmware will no longer be able to access your config file at boot time to merge it with the main config file.

I never thought about using the USB. I figured I would have to FTP it in somehow. Thanks!

And yes I have updated my dnsmaq.conf.add to have "server=" lines instead of what I had above.
