 Subject:  dns search domain for pptp clients
 Date:  Thu, 5 Oct 2006 09:42:44 -0400
Is there any way to assign a default DNS search domain to pptp  
clients?  I have an internal web server named foo in the domain  
foo.bar.com.  On my internal hosts, http://foo works b/c they are set  
to search bar.com.  This setting isn't passed to PPTP.  From a pptp  
machine, http://foo doesn't work, but http://foo.bar.com does.

Under both windows and OSX, you can set the search domain on the  
client side, but its many clicks and something my users are  
invariable not get quite right.  I was using the PPTP server on OSX  
Server edition which managed to set the default search domain on  
clients.  Unfortunately, as a PPTP server, it wasn't all to stable.

So, can the PPTP server broadcast its DNS search domain to clients?
