This would mean you'd have to run a caching name server, like I do.

If the forwarder was to an external name server - and you have *no* DNS
server running on your own machine -, then you'll have difficulty (not
impossible) in qualifying "localhost.yournode" (you'll have to get the
forwarder DNS admin to do it for you). You'll *have* to specify a DNS
resolveable domain for your own machine.

Go and speak to someone in your org who knows *everything* about DNS. He
MUST NOT be a Microsoft MCSE or a Novell CNA, since they're all wood
between the ears and can only point and click and answer multiple choice
questions without thinking.

Sorry MSCEs and CNAs, but I've had enough experience.

The usefulness of RTFM is vastly overrated.
