So I installed Ubuntu 13.04 (switch from Fedora) two days ago and I'm almost productive again except for one thing:
When I connect to my work's VPN, Network Manager doesn't pick up the nameservers like Fedora did. When I connect I can ping the IP addresses directly:
$ ping source.my-company.com > ping: unknown host source.my-company.com $ ping 126.96.36.1990 > 64 bytes from 188.8.131.520: icmp_req=2 ttl=64 time=67.8 ms > ...
What's more irritating is that I can easily ping the nameservers too. My network guy wants me to manually edit
resolv.conf, but that's not sustainable since I regularly switch between 3 VPNs. (Another source of irritation for another day: Fedora allowed me to connect to multiple VPNs, why won't Ubuntu?)
My question is how do I begin to debug this? I'm unfamiliar with DNS and Networking in general, and using new tools makes it harder to figure out.
