Thanks all for the proposals. Actually, I think Rein is correct in that
this discussion is going beyond the topic of this forum. Just for
information, my router is a cheap hardware router, not a PC. I do not think
I can configure it as a DNS. I have not attempted to configure a Linux box
as a DNS, but for this to work I shall at least need to buy one more network
card for the one old box I have and then replace my router with a switch.
So the whole effort will not be without financial expenditure. I cannot
imagine that someone else has not encoutered this problem before and has not
already found the solution. I shall keep looking...
Thanks again for the proposals and thoughts.
