I am currently configuiring a RUTX09 to act as a local DNS forwarding all DNS queries to a private DNS, when setup with the basic config I found it wasn't forwarding the .local requests. In order to fix this I removed . local from the "/usr/share/dnsmasq/rfc6761.conf" using the CLI and this resolved the issue. This change doesn't appear to get saved as part of the backup process so I have 2 questions.
1) Is this the best way to ensure that .local requests are forwarded?
2) How can I make it so that this change is backed up?
