check the dns/wins entry. This usually indicates that the name is wrong or could not be resolved.
To test, open the Enterprise Manager on m/c 2 and add the m/c 1 to it, and try to connect. If it does not work via name, try using the IP. If it still does not work, check if you installed the tcp/ip-client-protocol. I had serveral times problems with sql-server via wan without using tcp/ip-client. named pipes seems to have problems there (that's the default protocol)

Do both machines have the other machines defined to them? Also, can you, for testing, connect to the other server acting as a client on m/c 2? That will verify connectivity.

If possible, switch to TCP/IP as the protocol. You WAN people will appreciate as well as make it easier to debug when you have problems.
