 Subject:  DNS forwarder and DMZ
 Date:  Thu, 05 Oct 2006 08:36:01 -0400
I have a LAN ( and DMZ ( I'm using 
Monowall both as a DHCP and DNS forwarder and have the "Register DHCP 
leases in DNS forwarder" enabled.

Hosts on both LAN and DMZ can resolve names on internet. Hosts on the 
LAN can also resolve internal names on LAN and DMZ, but hosts on the DMZ 
cannot resolve any LAN names, but only internet names.

To get around it I had to manually add the names and IP's of LAN hosts 
to the hosts.conf on the servers in the DMZ.

Is this behavior normal? If not, how do I get around it without editing 
the hosts file? Thanks.
