Hi,

I have a Thomson VDSL router from Telecom.  I want to change the DNS to use unblock-us.com

So far I have done the following....

:dns server forward dnsset flush    
:dns server forward dnsset add set=0 dns=111.118.175.56 metric=0 intf=PPPoE
:dns server forward dnsset add set=0 dns=118.127.33.48 metric=0 intf=PPPoE
saveall

Then when I run
:dns server forward dnsset list

I get

Set Metric Flg DNS-Server EDNS Label Intf State
--- ------ --- --------------------------------------- ----
0       0          111.118.175.56             PPPoE UP
0       0          118.127.33.48               PPPoE UP

So far so good but when I restart my router it defaults to Telecom DNS.

Anyone know what I can do to permanently configure the router with unblock-us DNS?

Thanks.

"saveall" command?




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

Possibly PPP overwriting the DNS entries when the link comes up after a reboot.  Easy enough to test.  Just drop your PPPoE connection then bring it back up and see if it has the same effect.

Sorry.  Nothing obvious. There are probably a few workarounds you could try though.  If you are just wanting to straight out replace you ISP supplied DNS, you could look at just modifying the servers advertised by DHCP.
