You should be able to do that by writing a dhclient hook (see the manual for dhclient-script(8) for info), but I don't have a recipe at hand, as I've long since gone to running my own nameserver for other reasons. > Alternatively is there a way to dynamically tell BIND to get it's > forwarders list from /etc/resolv.conf? This could be done pretty much the same way. I thought I'd done it on my system, but as I look at named.conf, I don't seem to have ever finished the shell script to auto-generate the named.conf file. Bind 8 doesn't have a sufficiently powerful include mechanism to do this neatly. To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
