Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm at my home network with a router (192.168.0.1) using iptables and dnsmasq running debian stable
My clients 192.168.0.0/24 are running debian testing.
On my client i have running eth2 (lan-device) which uses the router as dns and a tun0 device wich is a openvpn connection to my work.
I use resolvconf to add the dns and domain of my work to /etc/resolv.conf .
Now when i have the tun0 device not active (vpn is not up) i can ping internally to "router" but when i have the vpn up (tun0) and the dns addes to my /etc/resolv.conf by resolvconf, the it tries to resolv my "router" by the dns of the vpn connection.
When i change the interface-order setting of resolvconf i can manage to ping locally but then the VPN dns isn't working.
Is there any way to get this right using my setup?
so that i can use local dns fine (hostnames) and dns for work fine without having to switch off and on the vpn all the times (very usefull for my imap mail over vpn.)
