I've got a Windows Server Essentials 2012 R2 domain with a few PCs. One PC is currently connected remotely by VPN. There were some connection issues before, which have since been resolved, but now folder redirection is not working on that client.
It seems that whenever I try to access any network path using the server's DNS name (
\\SERVERNAME\Folder Redirection), the folder is marked offline and thus all files which have not been made available offline are inaccessible. However, if I try to access the server using its IP address (
\\192.168.1.xxx\Folder Redirection), the folder is online and I can access all files normally.
Any idea why the folder is offline when accessed using the server name but online when using its IP? And is there some way I can "force" the folder to go back online?
I should add that I am able to ping and perform an
nslookup successfully for the server (using its name) from the client PC in question.
