Check your DNS settings.
Your server should point to itself for DNS in its network card settings. Your workstation shuld point to the server for its DNS in its network card settings.
When you attempt to join the domain, your workstation will discover  the location of the domain controller via DNS.

Also, check that the server firewall is not preventing the workstation from contacting the DNS server.  Other than that, ssmith is correct, given proper DNS settings, the workstation should be able to join if it is using the DC as its DNS server.
