Unable to browse network shares by IP but only by netbios name
Posted on 2004-09-13
I am running Windows XP and I have recently installed Service Pack 2.
My network has always worked fine, but now i cannot view shares on any computer with the use of an IP address (\\192.168.0.1), although I can when I use the netbios name associated with that IP (\\dexter). I find this extremely odd and annoying.
Both connected systems are able to ping each other fine.
Computer Browser Service is running.
Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated, thanks - Gavin.
