Trying to append dns suffixes in mac os x. In windows all I do is go to the advance adapter properties and select the Append these DNS suffixes (in order) and add the suffix and I can then ssh with just the server name without having to type the fully qualified domain name. I would love to know what the mac version of this is.

Thanks in advance
