Router not getting DNS server using ppp ipcp dns accept

Unanswered Question
Mar 3rd, 2007


I'm trying to get my router to accept the DNS server sent through from the service provider. I've configured the commands below, which are connecting fine and also getting an IP ok.

I'd like to be able to get a DNS server address from the service provider and then make this available to users of the DHCP scope on the router.

Anyone got this working?



interface Dialer1

description Connection to Internet

ip ddns update host

ip address negotiated

ip mtu 1492

ip nat outside

ip virtual-reassembly

encapsulation ppp

dialer pool 1

dialer-group 1

no cdp enable

ppp chap hostname

<username and password ommitted>

ppp pap sent-username

ppp ipcp dns accept

I have this problem too.

Many thanks. The link is an excellent resource for dynamic DNS, which I'm also looking at.

In my case, I just want to be able to accept the DNS server sent by the service provider as part of the PPP negotiation. .

Any ideas for me on that one?

thanks in advance,
