Avoid creating PPTP default routes
Authored by: ework on Feb 14, '05 05:41:22PM

Sorry I made an error again. I tried these scripts on a new network that only gives one DNS value. I have fixed the script for the these situations below.

[ /etc/ppp/ip-up ]

NETMASK=`echo $IPLOCAL | awk -F. '{OFS = "."}{print $1,$2,$3}'`
REVERSE=`echo $IPLOCAL | awk -F. '{OFS = "."}{print $3,$2,$1}'`

if [ `basename $0` = "ip-up" ] ; then
/sbin/route -n add -net $NETMASK $IPREMOTE
cat /etc/resolv.conf | sed s/^domain/#domain/ > /etc/resolv.conf
echo "domain $DOMAIN" >> /etc/resolv.conf
echo "nameserver $DNS1" > /etc/resolver/$DOMAIN
if [ "$DNS2" != "" ] ; then
echo "nameserver $DNS2" >> /etc/resolver/$DOMAIN
ln -s $DOMAIN /etc/resolver/$
/sbin/route -n delete -net $NETMASK $IPREMOTE
cat /etc/resolv.conf | grep -v "domain $DOMAIN" > /etc/resolv.conf
cat /etc/resolv.conf | sed s/^#domain/domain/ > /etc/resolv.conf
rm -f /etc/resolver/$DOMAIN
rm -f /etc/resolver/$

That's a **really** great tip.
By the way, I found the resolver does not always seem to update itself with the new file in /etc/resolver
When that happen, it seems renaming the file to .tmp, the move it back to the good name solve the issue.
I tried to touch the file or touch the directory without success.

The only thing I did to make it work is generating the file in /tmp, the mv it to /etc/resolver.
