Does the server have itself listed in the DNS data it serves?

Have you checked to make sure that the client can connect to the DNS server on port 53 (i.e. named is listening on that port and not blocked by a firewall or the like)?

have you set the correct details on the Network Connections settings in the Windows system? if you haven't done this then try it: Go to your Windows >start>Network Connections>Right-click on the LAN (Local Area Connection) icon, go to properties, a list of internet protocols will be listed,select >Internet Protocol IPV4 >go to its properties and fill in the details of the DNS serves appropriately
go to >Internet Options> connections>LAN settings>check Automatically detect settings, try to connect the machine again....i just thought maybe that might help you..good luck though!!
