Can't open shortcuts to files or folders with pc name in the path over VPN.

If I define the shortcut on my desktop like below it will not open over the Cisco VPN client it does however work fine in the domain environment.  I have to change it to the ip path not the UNC and it will work.

"\\PC30\Company\IT Department\Phone Support Calls" (Does not Work)

"\\10.3.10.2\Company\IT Department\Phone Support Calls" (Works)

\\TERA4\Backups (Does not Work)

\\10.3.10.1\Backups (Works)

hy, you mus to configure hosts file from c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
for example:  192.168.1.30    www.contoso.com  or 192.168.1.30    contoso

PC30 - 10.3.10.2
TERA4 - 10.3.10.1
