Description Robin McCorkell 2018-03-24 21:00:02 UTC
I want to use the internal Samba DNS server, forwarding to a recursive DNS server (Unbound) running on the same host. Samba takes port 53, so Unbound needs to listen on another port, but Samba cannot be configured to talk to a port other than 53 on the configured DNS forwarder.

I should be able to use `dns forwarder =` or `dns forwarder = [::1]:53530` to forward DNS queries to localhost on port 53530.

While this is not possible at the moment, I agree that this would be a good idea to get set up.

Setting host:port has landed in master and is scheduled for 4.16.
