[PATCH] Request and export Cisco Split DNS attribute
Please find attached a patch which requests the Cisco split DNS
attribute and then exports it to the connect script if it's received.
The attribute comes back as a NULL-terminated, comma-separated string
listing the domains that should be looked up using the VPN's DNS
servers. I've verified that the CISCO_SPLIT_DNS environment variable
gets set when connecting to my company's VPN, which lists several
internal domain names under the split-dns attribute.
I added a comment about the variable to the top of the default
vpnc-script, but I couldn't figure out whether any of the default
config mechanisms in the vpnc-script would be able to do anything
useful with that information. The Linux ones seemed unlikely since
they all just set the default DNS server AFAICT.
Thanks for your consideration,
