So having a weird problem that I haven't come across.

While in the office this laptop has no problems

While out and signed in using our vpn I have this problem.

I can ping our servers fine by their IP addresses, but when I try to ping it by it's friendly name "SERVER" it doesn't work and all of the mapped drives do not work.
