 Subject:  host records to override forwaders
 Date:  Mon, 22 Mar 2004 19:39:23 +0100
Hi all,

After I insert more than 1 host record to point to hosts on my internal 
lan, outgoing traffic is almost not possible. I'll explain a little bit 
I added several hostnames pointing to 1 specific host in my lan. This to 
make several domain names available internaly (eg. www.domain.net ; 
webmail.domain.net ; news.domain.net etc.)
Added some NAT rules for incomming traffic.
When I  add other hostname (and ip addresses) in the list to override 
the dns forwarders, things like outgoing mail times out, dns lookups 
fail etc.

On my workstations I point also the dns ipaddress to the monowalls ip 

Anybody an idea what I can do or whats wrong in this picture.
