  • There a few different options but you need to install DNS on your TMG first. Configure a forwarder to an external DNS (your ISP or whatever you find suitable) and then a conditional forwarder to  your AD DNS.

    Then configure your clients as web proxy clients OR have them use the DNS on the TMG as their DNS. The first one would be preferred as it is least invasive.

    If you configure your clients to use TMG as the proxy they will not attempt to resolve the names themselves, e.g. they will send a request to the proxy saying GET instead of first resolving the URL to an IP address and then sending it to the default gateway.
