Hi,

just wondering which setting is more important i.e. overwrites the other: GUI radio buttons or Additional Dnsmasq Options? All in the case of setting the same option by both ways, for e.g. cache size.

dnsmasq processes things by command priority, ie certain switches take priority over others. In most instances though usually the last option specified takes precedence, or it will throw an error specifying that the same information is specified twice.

The additional dnsmasq options are added at the end of the file. You can always check the file to see what the options are.
