This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

This question might be better asked as: would ANY RUNNING APPLICATION detect a change of DNS servers while it is running? I.e., this is not in any way specific to Xvnc. And the answer would appear to be "no", but I don't know for sure or if perhaps Xvnc might do something special. Incidentally, why do you care about Xvnc detecting the change? Just so that it logs correct hostnames when clients connect? – Celada Feb 28 '12 at 23:13
sites are blocked at work, so changing dns server to google seems to be the solution, now i do not want this change to be noticed to any1. hope you got my point – user1083047 Mar 21 '12 at 15:03
Sounds like you're asking the wrong question. It sounds like you want to know if sysadmins at your company will know (or care) that you have changed your DNS resolver. Nothing to do with VNC... Nothing to do with programming either. – Celada Mar 21 '12 at 20:37
yes could your right could you help me in that case – user1083047 May 11 '12 at 5:21
