Cannot ping server name on remote side of WAN



Hello

We are running a network with Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES 4.  The
network ID is 192.168.0.x.  The server IP address is 192.168.0.1.  

Two routers connect a remote site with Network ID 192.168.1.x.

We have configured the DNS server and it seems to be working fine.  On
the local side of the network (Network ID 192.168.0.x) we can ping the
server by using the server name or the FQDN.   Both the following
commands work.

	ping rs-svr1				(successful ping)
	ping rs-svr1.ruclaservices.local		(successful
ping)


However, from the remote side we can not ping using the server name.  We
can only ping using the FQDN.

	ping rs-svr1				(unsuccessful ping)
	ping rs-svr1.ruclaservices.local		(successful
ping)

Can anyone tell us why this is the case and how we can not correct it?
