That's typical when you don't have the reverse DNS set up
appropriately on the DNS server, which Windows servers don't by
default.  My first guess would be you get the exact same thing when
doing that from the main site.  Should still work, but for best DNS
functionality you need the reverse DNS zones.

If you then enter in some sort of host name, does it resolve it? 
Since it's one PC I wouldn't bother putting a DNS server onsite.  Over
the VPN will work fine.  I'd look at server issues, since you can ping
the server, connectivity seems to be fine.
