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.

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)

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.
