    adding more than one DNS server in FreeBSD?

    hey guys,
    Anybody know how to set up FreeBSD with more than one nameserver Adress? Mine keeps going down and ifconfig seems to only allow for one Address...TIA

    add the name of your second dns server to /etc/resolv.conf

    a sample of the file would look like :

    nameserver 192.168.100.2
    nameserver 192.168.100.1


    Substitute the 192.xxx addresses with your own DNS server IP's and that should work. That file should have nothing in it other than the lines containing "nameserver DNS.IP".

    Regards.. Hope this helps.

    edit : for more details on resolv.conf type "man resolv.conf" and you will get a more thorough explanation of this file.
