My situation is that I want to setup trackit (system auditing software) remote control.  My trackit server is located on my student network, to remote control systems on my staff network I need to be able to contact the workstation via workstation name.  I cannot see the workstations from the student network, when I try an nslookup or ping using name I get destination unreachable, but I can ping if I use the IP address.  I am not that well versed in DNS but I felt that is what is required to get this to work.  I have NS record of the Staff DNS server on the Student DNS server and visa versa.  I tried creating a secondary forward lookup zone for the staff network, but does not seem to be helping.  I hope this makes sense, can someone tell if I can have this ability and if so how.  Thank you
