desproxy−dns − DNS for dynamic connections desproxy−dns dns_server proxy_host proxy_port None If you have direct DNS access then you don’t need to do anything else. You know you have direct DNS access if you can resolve host names to IP addresses. NOTE: as desproxy‐dns listens in port 53 (which is less than 1024) you may need administrator privileges to exec desproxy‐dns (in fact if you are running UN*X, you actually have to run desproxy‐dns as root). OK, so you have a dns server accessible now. But your computer doesn’t know anything about that. You must configure your network accordingly (again, need to be root in UN*X). Edit /etc/resolv.conf and add the line "nameserver 127.0.0.1". You don’t have to restart anything. Just test ping and see if it works. None.
