Thanks. I don't quite understand what you are saying though. I *must* 
use the proxy servers (e.g. named and 
when the laptop is connected directly to the company network (i.e. when 
I'm at work).

What I'm trying to do is create an environment at home where this also 
works (1) without having to change the configuration of the laptop at 
all, and (2) without losing the ability to connect to other hosts in 
foo.tld which are visible from the Internet, and (3) without creating a 
maintenance nightmare.

I know of various solutions to my problem, but none that meet all three 
conditions above. Hence my question.

Cheers, Jan
