Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 52920
PEERDNS disabled by default, with no option to enable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new PPP connection.
2. Save settings.
3. Check /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0
PEERDNS=yes (or some way to control this from the configuration tool)
Setting PEERDNS to true allows the remote system to suggest DNS server
addresses to a client dialing in to it. Many ISPs don't even give this
information out any more, which makes this a necessary feature for their users.
PEERDNS is alway enabled as default in 0.8.0
to set PEERDNS you have to select Tab Protocol->Edit->Tab Hostname->
Automatically obtain DNS ....
I'd suggest changing "Edit..." to "Settings..." on the Protocol tab. Glancing
at the Protocol tab, I wouldn't have guessed it was in there.
