Problems using Remote Desktop from remote site to main site

I have an offsite server that is connected to our main campus with a Point to Point T1 and are using Netvanta 3200 routers on each end.  Offsite server is a Server 2003 machine.  I am remoted in to this server and I am trying to remote from that server back to a main campus server.  I cannot connect to any servers/machines from that server unless I do a tracert for the machine I want to RDP.

Has anyone had this issue before?

Sounds like a dns issue. Can you RDP if you connect directly to an IP address as opposed to a hostname?

No I cannot unless I do a tracert on the ip first.

Can you ping the machines?
It seems to me your routers are messing up

kmacholdtAuthor Commented:
I have several offsites that use VPN's and we are using Sonicwalls.  This is the only site that I am having a problem with and it is the only site using a Point to Point T1 with Netvanta 3200s.  Onsite is IP range of 10.10.1.0 - 10.10.10.255.  The offiste IP range is 10.11.1.0 - 10.11.3.100.
