 Subject:  Re: [m0n0wall] Where do I set another DNS server?

Do I have to have an own DNS by all means?
I'd really like to have one within m0n0 but I was told adding the plugin to a 
flash installation is not so hot.

Asking because I only added the two opendns IPs in general and now find I 
can't access "DNS forwarders" anymore, it just times out.
