Computer name not resolving on network

Post by Carel Pelser » Tue Mar 03, 2015 11:23 am

When you are trying to connect to a computer on the network by using \\FS1 and it does not connect but when using the IP address it connects, try doing the following:

Go to your network adapter in Control Panel.
Open the properties of the adapter and open the properties for TCP/IPv4.
Click on the Advanced button and select the WINS tab at the top.
Enable "NetBIOS over TCP/IP" under NetBIOS setting.

Click OK.
