There is an option in pppd to provide a dns server ip via ms-dns to windows
clients dialing into a netbsd dial up server. There is no option, however,
to have a netbsd box (as the client) get a dns server ip from another
server. With a Deja News search I discovered (third hand mind you) that the
folks who make pppd have no interest in including the short patch required
to capture this information and pass it to ip-up, as they feel that dns
should not be dealt with at that level (or something to that affect).
I found a patch that adds this functionality to pppd - would it not make
sense to add it to our version? Maybe not - just curious ;o)
It has solved my (very specific) setup, but I imagine other folks would
appreciate it as well. If some do think it makes sense I'll submit a PR.
