- Subject: automatic generation of resolv.conf
I recently downloaded and compiled dig from the bind
website. When I tried to run it, it wouldn't work unless I
specified the DNS server on the command line. Looking at
the man page on a Linux box, I saw a reference to
resolv.conf (which is obviously not present by default in
Windoze. Creating a resolv.conf with my ISP's name servers
in it fixed the issue.
I saw some posts from a while back where someone was
thinking about a utility to create the resolv.conf file for
some other application that was expecting its presence.
Does anyone know if this ever got further than the idea
phase? I use a laptop in a lot of different places and the
name servers vary from place to place, depending on the ISP.
I could just hard code the resolv.conf, but it would be
helpful to see the data my clients are seeing without having
to redo resolv.conf each time.
Thanks in advance for the help.
