I have a dial connection to Internet by a PPP link.
I use pppd to dial and route packet, but I want to clean the thing a
The major problem is my name. When I get my IP number (like 126.96.36.199),
my host name is "user33.alienor.fr". But my number is dynamic, so I never
get same IP number.
I think I can use the /etc/ppp/ip-up file to set my hostname (I make this
manualy using 'hostname' command). pppd pass the IP-number to
/etc/ppp/ip-up but I couldn't get a command to translate it to my name.
Yes, I can use 'nslookup', but this cmd generate garbage (like DNS name and
his IP-number). I want a command like :
# cmd 188.8.131.52
Nothing more ! Any suggestion ?
