I'm running a linux firewall with an SSH server, that allows me to connect to a Windows PC behind the firewall (IP 10.10.1.45). I use PUTTY and the Microsoft Loopback Interface to connect to the Windows TCP port on the client computer, so that the loopback IP is at 10.255.255.1. Connections to this allow me to access the Windows PC's shares at //name.
I would like to know if there is a way to make the client computer resolve connections to the windows share //name to both IP's (10.10.1.45 AND 10.255.255.255).
Is there an easy way to do this? Can it be done through the hosts file?
