It's not particularly easy to get a resolver to work without an Internet
connection. You'll need to set up your own root zone, and configure your
resolver with root hints pointing at your root server(s). I don't know if
there's a handy how-to out there for this kind of testbed...

Sole: Cyclonic 5 or 6, becoming east 4 or 5. Rough, occasionally moderate at
first in east. Thundery showers. Good, occasionally poor.
