I'm curious as to what domain name you'd expect to see, snd what it
would  do for you?

I'd expect to see something like <hostname> etc., the
reason why I ask is because Evolution likes to have a FQDN when posting
to news via leafnode which I use on my laptop. If there's no FQDN or an
invalid one, leafnode refuses to accept any posts.

This is only a problem when away from home. When at home I do have a
proper FQDN from my router.

OK, thanks. I just wondered, as I've never perceived a need for a FQDN when using a mobile link. I don't use Evolution.

I do find an irritating problem with 3 in that sometimes it fails to provide DNS addresses, and I have to disconnect and re-connect to pick them up. I'm pretty sure it's not a NM issue, just something glitchy with their connections or maybe the sh*t ZTE modem. :(. Seems to be worse with low signal strength, so maybe the link just loses the info. and never re-tries.

Do you ever get that?

Cheers, Rick
