network shares and adresses

By Beano43 ·
Hey guys

Sittin with a strange problem here, 1 of my workstations is having issues with seeing network shares from the server. if i go "\\servername" its meant to bring up all the shares, but it only shows 1 folder! if i use "\\IPaddress" it then shows all the stuff its meant to! why would it do this?

network shares and addresses

please check the permissions of the folders which you are trying to look. Normally if you type the computer name it will bring up the folders which all can see though restricted by username and read / write acess. If you have restricted or permission based folders then then would be attached to the ip address with permissions. Check and apply the policies accordingly.

soz i didnt add this earlier, but it doesnt do it constantly! it works fine for a few days, then cant c shares and mapped drives again, comp needs a restart after that again then it works fine for a while! think read/write access and permissions can stil do that?
