You do not need to run DNS to do what you are trying to do, but you need to 
list a valid (or more than one) DNS on your /etc/resolv.conf, which should 

search dnsdomainname.com
nameserver XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
nameserver XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX

Of course, XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX are the IP of the DNS you are going to use. Done!
