Does anyone know if Linux can auto assign DNS address like it does an
auto IP assignment? You can do it under freeBSD (and Windows), but
I've never seen it done under Linux.
You mean "dynamic dns", where the ISP sends the DNS numbers during LCP?Quote:Charles M writes:

I just moved all of my mail users to a Linux 1.2.13 machine. As I have
pointed out in a previous post is seems incredibly slow delivering
mail, relative to my older slakware machine.
But another oddity is occuring! Most of my users are local. They have
no problem checking thier mail and getting it. Except the dial in
users! Eudora, and most othe mail agents (Netscape, Yet Another News
Watcher and more) have problems connecting. It seems that they try and
bring up the connection but fail.
Interestingly enough they can talk fine to a pop server running on a
Sun on the same network, as well as using other TCP/IP services.
Oddly if you abort the pop login once or twice and try again it seems
to work for a few minutes. But if you check again 10 minutes later,
without the connection going down, the same problem occurs.
Any help is appreciated.
