17    <para>If the system is going to be connected to the Internet, it will
18    need some means of Domain Name Service (DNS) name resolution to
19    resolve Internet domain names to IP addresses, and vice versa. This is
20    best achieved by placing the IP address of the DNS server, available
21    from the ISP or network administrator, into
22    <filename>/etc/resolv.conf</filename>. If at least one of your network
23    interfaces is going to be configured by DHCP then you may not need to
24    create this file. By default DHCPCD will overwrite this file when it gets
25    a new lease from the DHCP server. If you wish to manually configure your
26    network interfaces or manually set your DNS using DHCP then create the
27    file by running the following:</para>
29<screen role="nodump"><userinput>cat &gt; /etc/resolv.conf &lt;&lt; "EOF"
30<literal># Begin /etc/resolv.conf
32domain <replaceable>[Your Domain Name]</replaceable>
33nameserver <replaceable>[IP address of your primary nameserver]</replaceable>
34nameserver <replaceable>[IP address of your secondary nameserver]</replaceable>
36# End /etc/resolv.conf</literal>
39    <para>The <replaceable>domain</replaceable> statement can be omitted or
40    replaced with a <replaceable>search</replaceable> statement. See the man
41    page for resolv.conf for more details.</para>
43    <para>Replace <replaceable>[IP address of the nameserver]</replaceable>
44    with the IP address of the DNS most appropriate for the setup. There will
45    often be more than one entry (requirements demand secondary servers for
46    fallback capability). If you only need or want one DNS server, remove the
47    second <emphasis>nameserver</emphasis> line from the file. The IP address
48    may also be a router on the local network.</para>
