Mac VPN DNS

Mac VPN DNS

Mac VPN DNS

(OP)
Hello, I have a question about the Macintosh VPN client. On Two macs, one being OSX  tiger, and the other being, well I don't know; its OSX of some flavor. When the machines VPN in, they get the IP address of a DNS server that is not mentioned anywhere in the Cisco VPN concentrator at all, or the DHCP options Linux/Windows XP/Windows Vista machines are pulling the DNS servers from DHCP just fine, however when the mac's connect they get the ip of the radius machine that is doing the authentication.
Luckily, I have DNS services on that machine anyhow, but I need to remove DNS from that Radius server in the near future.
Any Ideas?

Thanks in Advance,

RE: Mac VPN DNS

Can you explicitly specify a dns server in the cisco config, try that and see if the macs pick that up, i think they are just defaulting to the radius as it announces that it is a dns when they authenticate

they're not all recommended."
