Description Craig B. Markwardt 1999-12-01 02:28:39 UTC
I use my RedHat 6.1 machine to connect to multiple ISPs which have
different name servers.  Each one has its own PPP interface.
Unfortunately, there is no apparent way to select different name
servers for each interface.

Here is are two small patches for ifup-ppp and ifdown-ppp which
allow you to do this. If DNSSRVS is defined in ifcfg-pppX, then these
servers are added to /etc/resolv.conf when the device is brought up.

The DNSSRVS variable is used for the same thing in the PCMCIA package.

Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-06 19:27:59 UTC
This is already done for you, set
DNS1=foo
and
DNS2=bar
in your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* files and your
/etc/resolv.conf file will be munged appropriately.
