PPTP VPN Name Resolution not working

I have established a PPTP VPN connection to a SBS 2008 Server - connects fine, can access computers via IP address, but not by their computer names.

Linksys router WRT160N with port 1723 forwarded.

Please help.  Thank you.

DNS info (either DNS suffix or DNS Server or both) is not set to the remote domain by your connection. You should be able to access computers with their full qualified name (pc.domain.suffix) if DNS server is set. A
nslookup -d2 -v PCname
will reveal which DNS server is asked, and which DNS suffixes are used.
