are both subnets having the same problem? there will be no communication between two different subnets, unless you setup a static route.. preferably a persistent one  have you tried to configure one of the workstations with a static ip address with the correct dns entries? then try to ping the server using the computer name. have you tried pinging a workstation from the server?
