Can you run ipconfig from the problem client?

If so, try
ipconfig /all
to see the settings on the client side. Not sure what you'd get running it from the server.

Do as seanferd

has suggested but do it on the server as well and then compare the output.

Confirm that the Operating System (O/S) is properly configured with regard to Names Resolution.

Click Start, click Control Panel

Click Network Connections.

Right-click "Local Area Connection", and then click "Properties".

Click on (highlight) "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)", and then click "Properties" button

Click the General tab, and then click "Advanced" button , bottom right.

Click the WINS tab.

Under "NetBIOS setting" section, click Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP, and then click OK two times, then "close".

( ) Default

(*) Enable NetBios

( ) Disable NetBios

For Example: Open a CMD prompt, then Ping the remote machine by its Host Name.

Check your Services are Started on all PCs:

Remote Procedure Call (RPC)


TCP/IP Netbios helper


Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

Other things to try

Edit your "hosts" file in windows to add the IP Address and URL of the Server.

You have a host file found at C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts that allows you to specify IP addresses and their mappings to a URL.

What Operating System is running on this Server.
