Description Peter Much 2008-04-07 09:20:00 UTC
ppp, in server-side operation, is supposed to provide 2 DNS
adresses to the calling client. And it should fetch these out of
In fact, it provides only one of these: the second one.

This could even be considered serious because, depending on their
connectivity, it may cost people real money to persistently connect
their second, fall-back nameserver, and they may not notice it too soon.

 * configure at least 2 nameservers in your resolv.conf
 * configure your ppp to log IPCP negotiations and to "accept dns" 
   (that means actually that the ppp will accept requests for
   nameserver adresses).
 * bring up a connection and let the connecting peer ask for
   DNS info.
 * read the logfile.
