How can you have two servers in the same cell if they can't talk to each 
other?  In that case, either your cell isn't setup correctly, or you 
have two seperate cells that just happen to have the same name.

The correct solution would be to make both servers members of the same 
cell by copying the KeyFile from the original one to the new one.  And 
then restart the server processes and vos move from one to the other.
