One more thing based on my above comment
Authored by: scstraus on Jan 04, '07 02:37:17AM

Also do the reverse lookup

ln -s /etc/resolver/yahoo.com /etc/resolver/10.10.10.in-addr.arpa
ln -s /etc/resolver/yahoo.com /etc/resolver/168.192.in-addr.arpa

(make sure and reverse the order of the IP address sections so their backwards).



Also, I was kinda being stupid by using the IP address or doing what I did in step 5. Much better is to be disconnected from the VPN and simply do the following:

cp /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolver/vpn.yahoo.com

where vpn.yahoo.com is the full hostname of your vpn server you are connecting to.

This way it will use your normal resolvers for that host, but the private network's ones for the rest of the domain.

Duh. Don't know what I was thinking.
