Hi,

I'm wondering if it's possible to redirect a website URL to an IP or address on the LAN using DNS?

For example, a user types in www.facebook.com to their browser. Can we somehow setup the DNS on our server (Microsoft Windows Server 2003) to redirect this to an IP address on our LAN (our intranet home page for example).

We're looking at this as a deterent for users abusing our internet connection! I know they could get round it using the IP address of the website, but for most cases this should be sufficient.
