I have a LAN with few PCs on it. I want to have them to use a local server for DNS look up, and let the local server do look up with external (actual) DNS.

So, which proxy-DNS server do you suggest me? (one that is small, easy to set-up and handle).

I am running on Ubuntu by the way.

Thank you.

Dnsmasq, Bind, and most other DNS daemons do this out of the box. For a small setup on Ubuntu Dnsmasq will probably be easiest.

There is DNS forwarding option in every DNS server. You can utilize that feature for your need.
