Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-08-30 17:03:31 EDT
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.7.10-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new PPP connection.
2. Save settings.
3. Check /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0

Actual Results:
PEERDNS=no

Expected Results:
PEERDNS=yes (or some way to control this from the configuration tool)

Additional Information:
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.
Comment 1 Ngo Than 2001-08-31 07:56:03 EDT
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 ....
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-08-31 16:24:14 EDT
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.
