Hi,
 I'm trying to configure a mac with OS 8.6 to access the internet on my lan.

I have confired the TCP/IP settings manualy but I can't find anywhere to specify the DNS servers.

I can access websites by typing in the ip 64.236.24.12  (http://www.cnn.com)

so basically just need to know where I can enter manually the DNS servers.


thanks,.

Let's see.. it has been a while since I last use OS 8..

1) Go to Apple Menu -> Control Panels -> TCP/IP
2) There should be somewhere to set the Name Server Addr
