I've been reading a bit about the dns proxy feature but am not sure if it would do what I'd like it to do.
In one of our small offices we have an 871 (with 12.4-11.T1 Adv IP loaded) that serves as the perimeter router and also does basic firewall duty.
Here we have a small web server that has a local 192.168 address, and also has a static public IP address mapped to it, along with a public host/domain name.
The problem is that we can access the server from the outside using its public URL, but, on the lan we have to use the local IP address instead. I was contemplating setting up a small local DNS server that would take care of this, but, thought it would be wonderful if the 871 could do this own its own... Would it be possible for us to use it as our DNS server, specify one or two hostnames for which it would return an address, then forward any other requests to our ISP's nameservers?
