help w/ dns stuff


Hello All:

My isp just told me that they are migrating dns servers and that I should take out my dns addresses for me to logon.

I wasn't aware that I could logon w/out dns addresses.
Can I?

And how do I take out those addresses? I imagine that there's something else I should do (unless it's all taken care of on their end)

Please let me know.

Thanks,

ergo_sum

Your dns server config file is /etc/resolv.conf

You don't need dns if you are only using ip addresses. If you want to use name resolution (e.g., www.linuxquestions.org) then you will need dns.
