Can only access file sharing by IP not by server name

By wraidy ·

I have to different domain with no trust between them.
I can access a file sharing using \\IP address but i can't using \\servernam .

Is there a way other than creating a trust that might fix the problem .

If i add an entry on the DNS of one domain could it fix the problem.

A DNS entry would fix your issue.

Thanks for ur respond,That 's whay i thought because both sites used to connect.I added the entry on The dns as a host entry or i should add a cname entry.

Do you think this problem can be caused by a dns failure on the other site shall check both DNS on 2 sites can it be caused by an error on the other DNS?

Thanks in advanced
