The nameservers in resolv.conf are tried in order. You can simply put 127.0.0.1 first, followed by the other servers. This only adds a few seconds to the startup, it not like the timeouts of several minutes that you get when no nameserver is available. If your problem is that the external nameservers come from dhcp then just add the line prepend domain-name-servers 127.0.0.1; to /etc/dhclient.conf _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
