Active Directory, accessing other computers Problem

I have a domain admin account, that I am logged in on my workstation.  If I open up CMD.EXE, and type:

dir \\computer\c$,

It returns:
The system cannot find the path specified.

However, if I open up Windows Explorer and use the same \\computer\c$, it propagates the same data.  And then if I go back to CMD, and shell the same command afterwords, it propagates the data that I am expecting.  What do I need to change in AD to get the results I want in CMD?

The AD Server is running 2003
Windows Server 2003

Can you do a "net view \\computer" first before you do "dir \\computer\c$"? What happens?

System error 53 has occurred.

The network path was not found.

I've also tried running command prompt in Administrator mode, and I'm getting the same results.

Well, I found out a big clue.  I had a VPN tunnel active to my office.  I disconnected from my office, and I am able to do this now.  I wonder why.
