desproxy−dns − DNS for dynamic connections

   desproxy−dns dns_server proxy_host proxy_port


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". You don’t have to restart anything. Just test
ping and see if it works.
