Kindly answer the following to ensure that you problem is solved.


1. you have squid running on separate linux box ?
2. your gateway is separate computer ?
3. you want to run bind on separate computer ?
4. your internet connection type.?
5. what do you mean by direct connection to internet for the users ?
6. is the DNS server error coming on the client machine or on the linux box running squid?
