On my company network the IT dept has blocked the ability to get to some sites via DNS - not real effective, but it's a small company and it keeps most folks from getting to sites they want to block. Anyway, I was trying to set up my macbook to bypass this, so I just entered in some different DNS servers - I just used the 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 to use google. This got me around the DNS block, but, of course, it will no longer resolve names on our internal network. So, I just appended the two internal name servers to the list of DNS servers. It appears that if a connection to the first DNS server is made, it will not fail over to the others in the list, even it it can't resolve the address with that server. So my question is, is there a way I can tell the system to try the next DNS server in the list if it is unable to resolve the address? Just to be clear, by DNS list looks like: 126.96.36.199 # google 188.8.131.52 # google 10.0.100.2 #internal 10.0.100.1 #internal Right now if I try to ssh to an internal address (lets say its blah1234), it will look it up on 184.108.40.206 and see it doesn't exist. What I want is for it to continue down the list until it finds a server that can resolve the address. By the way, I'm running 10.6.8 for my OS..
