    Is it possible to have host records for which my DNS server is not
    authoritative? My DNS is authorative for but not for

    The purpose would be to redirect queries that would normally traverse a
    NAT'ed public IP address to an internal one directly. Apparently this is
    called "Event Horizon DNS"

    I could add entries to the hosts file for each machine, but I prefer to do
    it centrally from a DNS server.

    For example, instead of

    LAN client -> DNS resolves to public ip -> NAT internal ip

    LAN client -> DNS resolves to internal ip

    Use this example, you host on a local web server, but you
    don't host any other services in
    You would add a new forward lookup zone named then in that
    zone create one new host "A" record, leave the name field blank, give it the
    IP of the local web server. (Win2k barks at you saying (same as parent
    folder) is not a valid host name, click OK to create the record anyway)

    Is that the question?
