    The issue is that you apparently have the OpenDNS resolver addresses configured on the computers or on the DHCP/LAN side of the router. Therefore you send your internal lookups out to OpenDNS, this not being able to respond as you expect, so they respond with an OpenDNS IP address for Guide redirection in case the lookup came from a browser.

    Try with configuring the resolver addresses on the WAN side of your router. If this does not help:

    In order to receive NXDOMAIN responses for your internal names from OpenDNS, you'll want to add your internal names to the VPN exceptions list.

    "\\PCServer:8080.com\Myapp"

    That would be illegal syntax anyway, under each circumstance.
