Question for PPP Users
Pppconfig creates a resolv.conf file in /etc/ppp/resolv for each provider.
The /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/0dns-up script moves /etc/resolv.conf out of the way
and the appropriate file from /etc/ppp/resolv in when a ppp connection
comes up. /etc/ppp/ip-down.d moves the original resolv.conf back when ppp
goes down. You can edit the files in /etc/ppp/resolv, customising them by
adding search directives, etc. This allows you to have a resolv.conf
suitable for use when ppp is down, and one customized for each provider
when ppp is up.
Does anyone use this feature? Would you have used it if you had known
