I would:
1) Set up a DNS server with an external and internal connection
2) Configure it to be able to resolve external domains
3) Set up your internal DNS servers to forward by default to the =
4) Point your clients to the internal dns servers.

The internal dns servers will resolve internal zones before forwarding
requests to the external DNS server.

Subject: Own root cache for outside resolutios , possible?

Hi group,

I've a question for you.....

I've configured two machines as internal dns's for our company that
contain all of our internal zones and it has no public ip, the thing
it's that our internal services need to resolve outside domains also.

Which is the smartest solution to mantain this architecture?

I've tried to built my own root.cache so that when they have to resolve
external domains (yahoo.com , etc) the queries are redirect to other
dns's that has public ip and external resolution, but it looks like he
stills look for the real root cache sinstead of the file I've created.

Do I have to built my root.cache in a special way ? or it's not =
to do this ?

Hope my explanation it's clear .......
