(I probably shouldn't admit this but I was one of the early IPCop

I'm using DNSMasq here for my internal LAN domain as well as a few zones 
and resolving external addresses.  It's a little clumsy but it generally 
works well.

I'd be interested in hearing Richard why you're having troubles and what
