How to set host machine to use docker pihole dns?

Hi, I’m trying to set up the PiHole docker container on a laptop running Debian buster and I would like to have the laptop itself also use the PiHole dns, but I am unsure of how to do that.

I am using the stock docker-compose.yml listed here: https://github.com/pi-hole/docker-pi-hole#quick-start (except with the timezone set to my own timezone)

Here is what my /etc/network/interfaces file looks like on the debian host machine:

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback


# The primary network interface  
auto eno1 
iface eno1 inet static  
address 192.168.1.105  
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.1.1
network 192.168.1.0  
broadcast 192.168.1.255 
dns-nameservers 127.0.0.1

Note: I also tried not listing a dns-nameserver in the /etc/network/interfaces file but that didnt seem to work either.

PiHole itself is running fine, I can access the web admin and if I point another device to the laptop, it blocks sites on the device, but how do I get the PiHole host machine to use the PiHole docker dns?

Any help would be appreciated,
Cheers.

I got it working! Turns out there was a stray nameserver set in the /etc/resolv.conf file. Once I commented that out, it worked fine.

Feel free to close.
Thanks.
