    This concerns the periodic "Problems with dns setup" email I have been receiving

    Configuration is CPanel 11 on a VPS Server.
    This thread http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?p=392241 indicates ETHDEV from /etc/wwwacct.conf is used for the network connection, and defaults to eth0.

    Reading ipcheck (I can kind of read perl... no way I could write it!),
    looks like geteth0() parses the output of

    `/sbin/ifconfig $ethdev`

    Now on my VPS, when I issue /sbin/ifconfig -- my device to use with the correct IP Address is venet0:0

    Can I safely set ETHDEV in wwwacct.conf, and what other scripts might that impact -- too afraid to do it myself - need a CPanel guru to advise..

    Thanks

    Set the value using the Basic cPanel/WHM Setup interface in WHM. There is no need to update anything else.
