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 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 and omits the names of empty records.)

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
       *
