Re: DNS ip

Hi JMS,

If it is DNS client, put the entries in /etc/resolv.conf file.

You can add multiple DNS servers(Max 3) in /etc/resolv.conf like below

nameserver 100.10.10.1
nameserver 100.10.10.2
nameserver 100.10.10.3

See man resolv.conf for more details.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: DNS ip

Hi,

You can change the default gateway in the following file.

/etc/rc.config.d/netconf

Or use the set_parms script.

# set_parms initial

Re: DNS ip

Shalom,

The name servers you get for your network administrator.

You set them in /etc/resolv.conf

Using set_parms is all right but every once in a while you get unexpected results.

Better to set them yourself.

The effect is immediate without need of a reboot.

I always check network connectivity with a ping at least, better yet a:

telnet 53

To insure there really are DNS servers out there.

Also test with nslookup or dig (If installed) after the fact to make sure they work.

Note, standard configuration of /etc/nsswitch.conf goes to files first. This means names found in /etc/hosts will get looked up before DNS. This is a good tool for temporary network changes. It is something you need to be aware of if you do not achieve expected results.
