Can't use Server short name to locate Server through VPN network.

I have an intresting problem which I can't seem to solve.

I have a number of VPNs which are connected through Cisco and Dlink routers back to the main network.

Currently two of our routers are Cisco.
I have numerous servers which I can access through the IP address and short name for all of the VPN setups except for one VPN configuration.
The problem is with the machines behind one of the Cisco routers (which has been identically configured to the other) cannot resolve the short name to the Server. I have tried using the IP directly and it works fine.
I have looked through the DNS configurations on our DNS servers and the DHCP pool configurations and they appear to be correct. I tried to manually enter the link through the hosts file on one of the clients machines and I had no luck.

Can anyone offer me some advice of what I should look at next to solve this problem?
