    Default Changing DNS Settings

    I like to use opendns.com as my DNS Service. Is there a way to do that and still allow for my untangle box to act as a PPPoE/router and automatically pull an external IP address? Reason being, I do not have a static IP from my ISP so I can not set my external IP settings to manual without getting the occasional disconnect.

    I changed the /etc/resolv.conf file on the untangle box to:
    nameserver 208.67.222.222
    nameserver 208.67.220.220

    but it changes back to the ISP dns servers after a matter of hours. I am sure it is dhcp updating.

    Is there a temporary work around until the enhancement is implemented? I was thinking about creating an hourly script (cron) to run to make sure that the dns servers were what I wanted them to be. Are there any other/better suggestions?
