On most Unix-like operating systems there is a file called /etc/resolv.conf which contains information on domain name servers, the servers which help our computers translate domain names, like example.com, into IP addresses. While placing information about domain name system (DNS) servers into a text file is straight forward, it does not elegantly handle situations where computers connect to multiple networks which may all have their own specific DNS settings. To deal with these sorts of situations openresolv is being imported into DragonFly BSD: "Roy Marples has imported openresolv 3.9.2 to DragonFly. This is a replacement for the old-style /etc/resolv.conf file. The more complicated your network, the more you will appreciate this tool." Information on how openresolv works can be found on its developer's website.
