Man I apologize I wrote my email too late at night 8-)
My wording is all wrong what I meant to say is that I want my work
DNS, 192.168.1.90, to be the only DNS when PPTP is connected. The
192.168.1.90 DNS address is at my work and that is the one I want to
use. I guess I will start over and get my wording right. Here is the
laptop -> crappy DLink (LAN 192.168.2.x/24, WAN 192.168.1.x/24) ->
home monowall firewall (LAN 192.168.1.x, WAN DHCP from ISP) ->
internet -> work monowall (LAN 192.168.1.x/24, WAN Static IP from ISP)
-> LAN -> DNS server (192.168.1.90)
Settings on laptop (OS X Leopard) pertaining to DNS:
VPN Options - Send all traffic over VPN is checked
VPN DNS search domains - work domain is entered under search domains
Settings on Work Monowall pertaining to DNS:
DNS - work DNS server is primary DNS, ISP DNSes secondary. "Allow DNS
list to be overridden...." is unchecked
DNS Forwarder - "Enable DNS forwarder" is unchecked
I added in the domain override for my work domain and no luck.
Sorry for the goof. Thanks for the help.
