    Can you match a server with my situation?

    I have a need for a DNS server, and I am not sure which one will do the job:

    I have an internal network (192.168.0.x) which my internal LAN runs on. I have a router (OpenBSD) between the internet and the internal network that does the NAT and altq.

    I do a lot of website design and testing and there are a few computers that are always requiring a host file update so they can see domains properly internally, because on the outside, the point to the router, but when we resolve the domains, they come back as the IP address of the router and end up being "Connection Refused." So I need a DNS server that will answer correctly on domains I give it (about 10-15) and cache the rest of them.

    I looked at djbdns, but wasn't sure if it would do BOTH, unless I need two dns servers to accomplish this.

    I think I read that it can. Check the archives: http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=djbdns&r=1&w=2

    What you're looking for is split horizon DNS. You can try searching this forum (and google) for "split horizon". This question has been answered quite a few times here -- mostly by freebsd
