Ping By name issue

I have a computer that has an A record and PTR record in DNS.
its IP is 10.20.20.20 I can ping it successfully using

ping 10.20.20.20
ping -a 10.20.20.20 (it resolves the name)

But if I ping it by name
 ping compname
Or
ping compname.domainname.com

I receive:
Ping request could not find host compname. Please check the name and try again.

I can't see where the probleme could be.

Thanks

It seems that name resolution is blocked. Maybe a firewall issue?
Is NetBIOS over TCP/IP enabled?
Try disabling the firewall (just for testing for a min) to see if it is the problem. And see if the netbios settings are enabled.

If you still can't manage to get a successful ping reply, please respond :)

Hi there.
Please make a nslookup on your dns server. Post here the results.
nslookup, enter
server <your.dns.server>, enter
<10.20.20.20>, enter
(tell us the results)
<compname>
(tell us the results)
<compane.domain.com>
(tell us the results)
