    Glad that you clarified this. I was always confused between the two. Also glad that it's going away in the future

    This says to create a file under /home/pi/.firewalla/config/dnsmasq_local but the code says to echo to a folder.... Which is it?

    echo "local=/lan/127.0.0.2" >> /home/pi/.firewalla/config/dnsmasq_local 

    Or should it be:

    echo "local=/lan/127.0.0.2" >> /home/pi/.firewalla/config/dnsmasq_local/new_file

    Does this allow multiple search domains?

    @James - you can create any file in /home/pi/.firewalla/config/dnsmsaq_local.  You have to add one line per search domain you want to filter.

    Example of /home/pi/.firewalla/config/dnsmsaq_local/staylocal

    local=/lan/127.0.0.2
    local=/local/127.0.0.2
    local=/guest/127.0.0.2

    @Firewalla - another related issue is that the Firewalla uses upstream DNS for reverse lookups of local addresses.  Any suggestions on how to stop this as well?
