UNC path by name

in all servers w2003 i can type in RUN window \\computer1 and it will open the shares in computer1.
there is only one server from which when I try it it gives me a message:
Logon failure: the target name is incorrect.

when I try with IP address example: \\ 10.x.x.x  it works fine.

any idea why?

Thanks

I added WINS IP address in the WINS tab and it solved the problem
