Hi there

I have a question concerning avahi & OpenVPN (or VPN in general). In the 
company I work, we use openvpn for remote connection. The OpenVPN client 
can update the dns-servers/search-domain only on win32. On linux a 
script is needed, which adds this information to resolv.conf.
Yesterday I discovered avahi and wondered if it would be possible that 
the openvpn-script could just use DBUS to send avahi a message to "scan" 
the new network or add the company's dns server as new service.
I personally don't like the idea of having a vpn-client which changes 
system configuration files.

Thanks in advance,
