Default local DNS on LAN for office

How can I set up a local DNS entry so the site moves faster for those on the LAN? I want www.mysite.com to be for the world, but something like local.mysite.com to work for those in the office on the LAN.

I tried adding an A record for local.mysite.com pointing to the local IP 192.168.1.104 but it does nothing.

Thanks

This should work. Make sure that your dns server is used by the local clients to resolve dns records.

My local server that runs the DNS is 192.168.1.104, so I set my PC to use this as DNS and I get nothing, I can't even see google.com using that DNS.

If 192.168.1.104 is a ISPConfig server then it is normal that you can not resolve external domains as mydns is a non resolving dns server. You will either have to install a separate resolver or configure your clients with more then one dns server.

If you want to test your dns server, use the dig command.
