Netbios name resolution does not work across subnets
so I am guessing that that is causing the problem. Using
the IP address does not have this issue.
There are two ways to deal with this:
1. have a WINS server
2. put appropriate entries in the LMHOSTS file
More info can be found here:
Hope this helps.
