when you connect to a server that is not in your local subnet, the only way you can connect is through the IP address. But we can create alias for servers, so we don't have to use IP but the names of these servers. I was hoping that it is saved in a xml file (like how registered servers are saved in a xml file)..

thanks

No, it is not in an Xml configuration file.  I believe that is saved in the registry.
