Apple Internet Connection Kit DNS problem
Posted on 1997-06-11
Why, when using the copy of Netscape that comes with the AICK, does some component AUTOMATICALLY change the TCP/IP configuration in the TCP/IP control panel to Apple's "Internet Registration Server" DNS settings from the currently active configuration (my ISP's settings)? This is really annoying since it immediately kills the TCP/IP sockets and gives nasty DNS messages. Even when you *delete* the AICK DNS configuration it reappears later! Yikes! Is there a way to deactivate this 'feature' of the Apple software? Is it part of their proprietary version of Netscape? Worse yet, is Apple trying to improve it's image by mimicking Microsoft's dictatorial self-configuring software?
