  • OK I changed the repositories to strech, updated and now version of dnsmasq is 2.76.

  • I edited /etc/apt/sources.list and added
    deb testing main

    apt-get update
    and then
    apt-get install dnsmasq/testing

    ~$ sudo apt-get install dnsmasq-base/testing

    @hariskar Where did you get the newer dnsmasq package from? Manually downloaded? You need to download dnsmasq-base as well. That is where the actual binary is included on Debian systems.

    See the difference here:

    dpkg -l | grep dnsmasq
    ii  dnsmasq                               2.80-1
    ii  dnsmasq-base                          2.72-3+deb8u4

  • ~$ sudo find / -name dnsmasq
    [sudo] password for hk: 
    which dnsmasq

    finds nothing.

    ~$ sudo which dnsmasq

    How can I get rid of 2.72? Why windows xp pc boots normal but then goes to windows instead of capturing image?

    @hariskar so if you key in sudo find / -name dnsmasq what is the response?

    What about this command which dnsmasq

    My bet is the older version is being found first in the search path that’s why its still 2.72 (which is really old and will not work for uefi detection). You do need 2.76 or newer.

  • ~$ dpkg -l | grep dnsmasq
    ii  dnsmasq                               2.80-1                                  all          Small caching DNS proxy and DHCP/TFTP server
    ii  dnsmasq-base                          2.72-3+deb8u4                           i386         Small caching DNS proxy and DHCP/TFTP server
    ~$ dpkg -L dnsmasq
    ~$ dpkg -L dnsmasq-base | grep bin

    I just followed this guide:
    . The only thing I put is the IP of the server where needed.

    Thank you!

    @hariskar You are aware of the fact that you need to manually configure dnsmasq?

    Not sure about the version issue. Please run the following commands to find out more about this:

    dpkg -l | grep dnsmasq
    dpkg -L dnsmasq
    dpkg -L dnsmasq-base | grep bin

    Beste if you copy&paste the commands so you don’t mix up with the different parameters. Post results here in the forums.

  • Thank you, I installed dnsmasq on Debian 8. Version was 2.72 by default and then I installed successfully as the terminal said version 2.80-1. But with
    sudo dnsmasq -v it still says verson 2.72 is installed, I guess because version 2.80-1 is from testing repository.

    Unpacking dnsmasq (2.80-1) ...
    Setting up dnsmasq (2.80-1) ...
    [ ok ] Starting DNS forwarder and DHCP server: dnsmasq.
    hk@debian-server:~$ sudo dnsmasq -v
    Dnsmasq version 2.72

    This massage about 2.72 version shows even if I uninstall dnsmasq.

    I still have the router as DHCP server.
    When I create and execute an instant Capture task, Windows XP pc boots but shows message:
    PXE-T01: File not found
    PXE-E3B: TFTP Error - File not found
    PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.
    and then boots to windows.

    I use the same FOG installation as I had with dd-wrt router and dnsmasq in router.

    Any help?
    Thank you!

    Most soho routers do not support pxe booting, or if they do they behave very badly (hint: Linksys). In this situation you will probably want to install dnsmasq on your FOG server to supply pxe boot information correctly where your soho router can not. I have a tutorial posted with steps needed to install dnsmasq on your fog server. In this configuration dnsmasq will only provide pxe boot information and nothing else. Your soho router will still be needed to supply dhcp IP addresses and other boot time information.

  • Hi,

    this is not possible in the default firmware, you may can try if there is support for a freetz image that you can compile on your own. Afaik there is no support for the 75XX models for freetz:

    DNSMasq is maybe an option but i am not used to it, you can try to ask @george1421
