That isn't the problem, there is no Windows or PPTP in the network. The
VPN is an IPSec-tunnel and all computers are running Linux. I think
m0n0wall tries to connect to the forward DNS server throuh the WAN
interface and because of the private IP of the DNS Server it fails.

fisch@laptop:~> nslookup nohost.noip
Server:         (m0n0wall)

** server can't find nohost.noip: NXDOMAIN

fisch@laptop:~> nslookup host.company.lan
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

my networks are:
WAN: dhcp, public IP

the DNS server m0n0 has to forward the query is 192.168.3.x
