Not actually tested this, ip-up might be a little early for this $ cat > /etc/ppp/ppp-linkup #!/bin/sh ( /bin/echo -e "domain foo\nnameserver 192.168.1.1\n"; /usr/bin/grep nameserver /etc/resolv.conf ) > /tmp/resolv.conf /bin/mv /tmp/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf ^D $ chmod +x /etc/ppp/ppp.linkup Or add "resolv readonly" to your ppp.conf, and maintain your resolv.conf yourself.
