1.3. Secondary DNS Server Address

Description

This Configuration Option defines a method for negotiating with the remote peer the address of the secondary DNS server to be used on the local end of the link. If local peer requests an invalid server address (which it will typically do intentionally) the remote peer specifies the address by NAKing this option, and returning the IP address of a valid DNS server.

By default, no secondary DNS address is provided.

A summary of the Secondary DNS Address Configuration Option format is shown below. The fields are transmitted from left to right.
