PPP normally provides the dns server addresses itself, in which case the suggestion to remove "enable dns" from ppp.conf is correct. Well, as always, YMMV. If the connection is providing a dynamic address via dhcp, as my ADSL provider is, it appears to be dhclient that's updating resolv.conf so the setup as stated works for me. I have 'enable dns' in my ppp.conf file as well but my provider doesn't seem to be able to offer a dns server address correctly, which is why I run one locally on the network. I suspect it is probably a setup error on my part but I have neither the time or the inclination to tinker with it any more than I have to. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
