Using public DNS but need to access local domain???

jdff asked
Last Modified: 2015-05-14
I was wondering if there is a way to use public DNS settings on a workstation who is member of a local domain and still query the domain controller.

I'm looking to use OpenDNS filtering on a couple computers in our network, but the minute I change the DNS settings on the workstation to point to OpenDNS, I can not query the local domain controller anymore. Is there a way to use a public dns configuration for the internet traffic but still query the local DNS server for local traffic?
