I received this error if i type \\computer . now i can get to computer by ip address(\\10.....). Just a note this is running over a vpn tunnel. computer a is one side and computer b on other. Either way i try it same result. now i can go \\computer.domainname.local and access the files fine. I have check the dns between each site and they are copying the current zone info. (There are no conflicting computer names).
am i missing a port through firewall? i open ports 445 and 138.
i like to be able to \\computer becuase of a database issue i am working on.
Thanks in advance
