net use with IP address as computer name fail with error 53
Hi,
Recenty I installed a Vista Business and encounter the following error
at command prompt and issue the following
net use g: \\192.168.11.17\test
I get a "Error 53".

However, if I use the FQDN (with the help of a internal DNS server)
net use g: \\server.xxx.com\test

and it work and I get a password prompt.
Does anyone know how to enable vista to work with IP as unc ?
Thanks a lot.
Ah Kim

what do you receive if using this command: ping -a 192.168.11.17?

Robert,
Thanks for your reply and I'll try on Monday and report ASAP.

However, actually we're normally just using IP as the UNC computer name and
don't care of any DNS issue.

I think there should be way to enable vista to know of IP as unc name as
\\<IP_ADDRESS>\sharename .

Regards,
ah kim

Hi, All
I found the reason. I need to start nmbd in samba. It look like vista insist
on doing a netbios name lookup instead of going directly via the IP.
By the way, if there any registry settings I can set to enable vista to go
directly to the IP while using "net use" command ?
