Remote Connection only working on some workstations

Some background information:
I have a server running windows server 2003, approximately 10 workstations running xp pro connected through a switch, server is set up as DHCP. The server is assigning the ip addresses. I have the DNS on the workstations setup with the servers ip address. I have cable internet to a cable modem/router (set to bypass) connected to a router/vpn (dhcp turned off and vpn setup connected to another office) then connected to switch. The servers gateway is set to the ip address of the router/vpn.

The problem I am having:
Only on one workstation and on the server I can connect to the remote office through the vpn using remote desktop. I type the ip address of the remote connection and the remote screen pops up and I can get in. I need to find out why I can not connect remotely using other workstations. All the workstations are setup the same: Ip addresses set to obtain automatically, DNS server address set with servers ip address.

Additional information:
When I do a ipconfig /all on the workstation that connects remotely it says 'admin' in the 'Connection-specific DNS Suffic:'. The other workstations this item is blank. Also some of the workstations do not show the ip address of the router/vpn in the 'Default Gateway:' and can not connect to the internet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as to why the other workstations are not able to connect remotely
