I am having problems setting my DNS server with kppp.
I set up a dial up account, and I can log on and can ping
IP addresses but cannot resolve hostnames.
Can I set the connection to automaticaly get DNS settings
or do I have to actually find out the IP address of the DNS

You have to setup your /etc/resolv.conf file for the dns client to work. You can do that by putting the name server ip address(es) in the appropriate section for kppp or just adding it to the /etc/resolv.conf file directly.

domain  foo.com  #Your isp domain
nameserver #Your primary isp nameserver
nameserver #Your secondary isp nameserver

Please leave a comment if you still have problems. Thanks
