I have a machine named MACHINE_A
I go to another machine....MACHINE_B (this is any machine on the network nothing specific).....
I ping (ping 188.8.131.52)
I get a reply.....GREAT!!!!
I ping (ping MACHINE_A)
I get Request Timed Out....
I go to the WINS and DNS servers. Specifically added static mappings for MACHINE_A 184.108.40.206....Still no go.
What's going on.
