Subject: [gentoo-user] OT: dhcpcd overwrites /etc/resolv.conf after CiscoVPN is started
Date: Thu, 17 May 2007 14:15:39
1 I'm having some trouble with dhcpcd and CiscoVPN. This is what I do and what's
2 happening.
4 Computer starts and brings up eth1 (Wireless interface)
5 dhcpcd starts and gets IP, GW, resolv.conf information (wich is correct at
6 this time)
7 cisco-vpnclient-starts and I get a new interface cipsec0 with "VPN"-IP
8 the vpn-client also changes the default-gw and resolv.conf
9 I can now do dnslookups for the hosts in the company network (resolv.conf is
10 the on from the company).
11 After a few minutes resolv.conf gets overwritten with the dhcpcd version, and
12 I can no longer do any lookups for hosts in the company network, I can still
13 connect to the hosts using IP.
14 Any suggestions on how to make dhcpcd not to override the resolv.conf from the
15 cisco-vpn-client?
17 Regards,
