 Subject:  RE: [m0n0wall] DNS forwarder using Active Directory

The best solution is use the forwarder option on Microsoft DNS.
And on the future use a third level domain on the domain and not the
ambiguous .local, for example if your public domain is domain.net  use
local.domain.net as the windows domain. Clean and easy for future ideas, and
without the conflictive modifications on mac for understand the .local

I'm guessing the authoritative DNS server for the domain you've setup are
across an IPsec connection. If that's the case, the fix is the same as the
SNMP over VPN fix (see FAQ).
