Bypass LAN DNS for Specific Domain

Some our security folks at work are blocking access to a couple of websites by puting phoney dns forward lookup zones for these domains on our internal dns servers. My pc needs to be using our internal dns servers for network access, but I want to bypass these servers for one or two specific domains and use an outside dns server. Is there any way to do this?

You can define all DNS server on you network interface and put the outside DNS servers higher in the order. Better way would surly be a conditional forwarder on your internal DNS Server but this is no option for you.

You can setup in your Host file direct external IP addresses that point to the external Websites.

Bypassing systems that have been put in place by your IT department is not a good idea.

If you do manage to bypass them (which isn't that difficult) and you get found out (which will happen), then your HR department will take a very dim view of your actions and you could find yourself out of work for gross misconduct.

If you have a genuine business reason for accessing the sites, ask your manager to authorise your access and IT will help you.  

If not - don't do it dude or you'll be up to your armpits in the brown smelly stuff.
