I have a network share on a machine that I can only reach by IP address. I then defined an alias for the IP in my hosts file so I could use that instead of the IP but then I can't log on to the share, I just get the logon prompt again and again. So basically this:
works but this
doesn't. myalias is defined in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts as
And I can use the alias for remote desktop without problems.
Can anyone tell me why this doesn't work for fileshares?
