Changing Android DNS-Settings after Establishing OpenVPN connection

Hi,

where does Android store its DNS-Settings?

I managed to establish an openvpn connection, but without being able to change the dns-server that doesn't help much...

is there some kind of script that i could execute after establishing the connection?

thanks very much

dns settings are in the net.dns1 and net.dns2 property android database.

You can use getprop / setprop net.dns1 (and net.dns2) to read and write the dns servers values.

I can confirm that this works, but the settings do not 'hold' and are overwritten if the connection is re-established at any point. I haven't as yet been able to find a way to 'lock' the setting, as the DHCP system overwrites the DNS server values every time the phone re-connects to 3G (or refreshes it), making it reset to your network's default.

Any ideas where the actual connection is initiated inside the phone?
