Take a look at what does and doesn't work. First off, can you ping the host in a reasonable amount of time? If not then a traceroute between the two machines may lead to the problem. Once had a server that sent out a it's traffic for a certain host to the internet. Bad routing table was what it turned out to be.

If it were me I'd use tcpdump first to see what the differential on the packet delivery
looked like. tcpdump is unintrusive and that is why I would start there.
