Hi Peter,
Thanks for your help. I already have this line in ppp.conf(and I commented out this morning). I read in the handbook(I think) that this will use DNS servers from resolv.conf. But I want any kind of local(hosts, resolv.conf, local named) etc to be disabled and just use/get the DNS, gateway etc from my ISP.
Just to help you to help me more :), my ISP does not show "login" in the terminal window so I guess he wants me to connect via PAP/CHAP. I have that configured via KPPP and ppp.conf reflects that but wonder why the connection is not established. I have configured tun0 and tun1, modem is proper(since KPPP can dial out) etc. Do I need to make ppp.link* files. I don't have them right now. I can send you my complete config. info if you want. Please guide me, I am really stuck.


Thanks,
Jiger

Place a line in your ppp.conf file that looks like this:

enable dns

Are you running KDE as root?

You can add DNS-servers manually to /etc/resolv.conf like:
nameserver 62.101.193.44
nameserver 217.118.32.13

The problem is I don't know my ISP's nameservers. They come to me dynamically. On WInXP it works fine. But on FreeBSD I don't know how to make that happen. Also can I connect/configure kppp using non-root user just like in Linux which asks for root password and takes care of the rest?



Try this if you dont get KPPP to work: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/userppp.html
