I suspect you are correct, that it is a DNS Proxy and not a DNS
Server. I googled
site:ipcop.org caching+DNS+server and I see things that refer to DNS
Server and also
things that refer to DNS Proxy.

In the IPCop Administrative Manual, it says, "As well as Caching DNS
information from the Internet,
the DNS proxy on IPCop........."

As I wrote a few minutes ago, the next time I hook up that IPCop box,
I will follow the instructions on opendns.com and see what happens.
