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
       *
