Hi Pat,

	If you have DNS Forwarder enabled in your setup, m0n0wall by default 
sets itself as DNS server and sends that info via dhcp.

	If you're setting up a windows client to use PPTP, you can bypass that 
in the client configuration. Check out the TCP/IP configuration, you can 
manually add a DNS server. Thus, enabling you to do name resolution when 
connecting via PPTP.

	Hope this help,
