Has anyone gotten Cisco's new Unity client (basically the 3000 series client,
version 3.5) to work under Mac OS X? I've got the client installed (Cisco has a
minor bug with one of the startup scripts that gets installed, but it's easy to
fix), and it connects just fine to my 3000 series concentrator and I get full IP
connectivity. The problem is that DNS support is not so wonderful in that OS X
doesn't reference the /etc/resolv.conf file on the fly, so even though the Cisco
client dynamically and correctly updates this file with the DNS information the
concentrator hands out, it doesn't "take" because OS X ignores it. The end
result is no DNS.
Thanks in advance, and Happy Holidays!
