Apple Internet Connection Kit DNS problem

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?

I've seen this exact situation before.  The problem was that the TCP/IP setting was set to be configured BY the AICK.

Go to the TCP/IP control panel, for the Configuire pull-down choose Manual.  This will force your settings to be used.

Let me know if you still have a problem.

I don't know why its doing that, but I'd suggest you get FreePPP (www.rockstar.com) and use  that to dial in.

Send the mactcp and netscape preferences into trash can, and restart.
