can only map to IP address (not name)Locked
I have a weird problem. The client has 2 WinXP Pro machines with a Linksys DSL/Cable router. They do not have internet connectivity, however are only using that router as a hub/switch. I connected one of the machines (Workstation B) to the router (which already had Workstation A and another device that goes beyond the scope of the question).
Having issues mapping a drive on Workstation A from Workstation B, I tooled with Simple File Sharing (turning it off). I added an account to Workstation A that Workstation B logs on to. I cannot map the drive using the Netbios name, however can do it through IP address. Although this sounds like a DNS issue (which there is none due to lack of connectivity), anyone have any ideas (besides upgrading them to a domain which they do not need at this time)?
I thought it might be the router’s security, however could see no settings in its config stating so.
