I have a windows server 2003 that is setup as a vpn server using pptp.  However when my mac clients go to connect it brings the dns servers with the connection info.  Is their anyway I can override the dns that it brings?  I don't need for the vpn to supply dns.

Generally those settings come with the DHCP server that's assigning the IP to the device. Change your scope for the VPN to not include DNS server IP's or include the DNS server IP's that you want to use.

Keep in mind that if you do not have a scope just for the VPN that this could effect users within the organization. I'd recommend have a seperate scope just for the VPN users.

Hope this helps!

Yeah we do actually but I couldn't find the dns settings for the dhcp for vpn.  It however does not have real dhcp on it.  It on;y does dhcp for vpn clients.

It might use the DNS settings that are on the device/server assigning DHCP addresses. If you remove the DNS settings on the VPN device does it might remove it whenever it assigns an IP address.

What kind of VPN hardware/software are you working with?
