Re: DSL Internet Connection Question



Hello Tobias,

Right now 'dhclient.conf' is completely commented out.

Would adding the line:

supercede domain-name-servers "dns.IP.address.1 dns.IP.address.2";

...do the job of hardcoding:

nameserver dns.IP.address.1
nameserver dns.IP.address.2

...into the 'resolv.conf' file?

Yes, I plan on figuring this out, eventually.

What puzzles me, is that exactly the same line...

nameserver 192.168.1.254

...which is a private IP addy, placed in the 'resolv.conf' file by
DHCP on my Red Hat installation, and there, everything works fine.

As soon as I know OpenBSD a little better, I will probably be able to
figure out what is different, that makes things work in Red Hat, but
break in Open BSD. Then I can replace the kludge with something
permanent.

thanks,
