I have a network of Win95 stations with FreeBSD router to the Inet via PPP (user mode). Now I use pppup/pppdown scripts, but want to use dial on demand. But there is a one problem: If I set all NS in Win95 clients to my ISP provider NS, then ppp link established even they want to go to local WWW server. ;( If I make up my own NAMED (with forwarders-only feature points to my ISP NS) and all Win95
looking for him in their ns queries, then there is a strange thing: Link is going up every minute ;( (Why named going to Inet so frequently?) If I set dfilter deny 53 port (disable named to establish any link) then Win95 stations cant resolve any name and link is not established.
What Should I Do ? How other making his dial on demand ?

You should pass any 53 anmed request as dfilter, but dont make them keep
connection alive (afilter deny). You named should work as cache DNS server,
and it stop to establish connection after some tryes (when his cache will have main adresses, you using) !

I dont set NS on Win95 clients (they going through proxy and don't need in dns)
and set gateway="NO". It's work very fine !

To resolve this problem, In Win95, edit file "hosts" in win95 directory, add your local WWW server.
(syntax :    <Ip address> <hostname> )
