Chris,

That's was the problem - thanx for pointing it out.

This is really eluding me. This is from ipconfig /all after establishing 
the PPTP session:

PPP adapter FLC:

         Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
         Description . . . . . . . . . . . : WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface
         Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-53-45-00-00-00
         Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
         IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.10.10.192
         Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.255
         Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.10.10.192
         DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.10.10.1
         Primary WINS Server . . . . . . . : 10.10.10.1

10.10.10.1 is the Windows server. The local Windows machines use the same 
DNS and WINS settings and can resolve local names with no problem.
