Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 449262
Custom DNS settings
Last modified: 2008-11-02 17:13:20 EST
Description of problem:
NetworkManager gives a facility to enter custom dns now - which is great, but it
actually uses dns given by dhcp server (don't know why).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
latest from Fedora 9 updates
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a new wifi profile
2. set static IP, ie. 192.168.0.100, netmask 255.255.255.0, gate 192.168.0.250
3. set custom dns to 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206
4. connect to the network
5. check connection information
Static IP - fine, works (finally!)
Custom DNS - primary is set to 192.168.0.250 (!), secondary is set to
220.127.116.11 - why??
DNS should be set to my custom dns.
The current behavior is to append your custom servers to the list the DHCP
server returns; already in upstream SVN there's an option to ignore what the
DHCP server returns and only use the specified values. That should hit F9 in an
update quite soon.
Something more: networkmanager appends the custom information of *all* the known
connections. It's true for the nameservers list and for the 'search domain' list.
Should be working in latest NM updates (svn4022 and later). Please reopen if it's not. Thanks!
