Thanks for the great script - it has made my life a lot easier as I switch
from network to network, since a few networks I connect to require me to use
the local, provided DNS caching server for things to work properly.
However, given the bad things that can happen if we use a DNS caching server
that should not be trusted - and the frequency with which I connect to public,
untrusted wifi networks, I realized that what I really want to do is:
Use my locally configured DNS cache in all cases *except* a few given
networks that I specify by hand.
As far as I can tell, the dnscache script will always use the DNS caching
server if one is provided via DHCP.
I'm not sure how this should be done or maybe it already can be done and I
just don't know how. Hm. But - it would sure be useful.
