if i understand the split_dns technic correctly, i could either
fetch a dns server from vpn-concentrator and get split_dns hostnames
 for using with the remote-dns server or define locally a split-dns
 server (in client configuration) and appropriate domains.

In both cases only for the listed/supplied domains should the remote
dns-server be querried. For all other dns-lookups, the system
default DNS-server should get the request.

Long story short, it doesn't work:


ShrewSoft DNS Proxy Daemon is running. Now i expect to get
dns-answers for plzk.de from the remote dns-server ( and
all other requets a answer from my local dns (

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>nslookup plzk.de
Server:  fritz.fonwlan.box

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    plzk.de

(still the local server answers)

Am i missing something?
