I'm having a very similar problem as in this similar question: When trying to copy something from another computer, I receive following error message:
You were not connected because a duplicate name exists on the network. Go to System in Control Panel to change the computer name and try again.
As mentioned I could easily solve this issue by modifying the hostname of my computer, but instead of that I'd like to contact the owner of the other computer and discuss on what to do. Therefore I need to have some information on the other computer (e.g. IP address). Does somebody know how I can show all computers in my network, so that I can know where to find the duplicate computer?
Just for your information, a
ping request only reveals my own computer (obviously), but also the
nslookup does not give satisfying results:
<server>.<domain>.com can't find <computer_name>: Non-existing domain
When I shut down the machine and try to
ping it (using its name), the
ping request returns
<IP address>: Destination host unreachable (the mentioned IP address is the one of the machine I've just shut down).
Nslookup only mentions the IP address of the machine I've just shut down. (So there seems not to be any duplicate machine).
Does anybody have any ideas? (Oh, yes, before I forget: all machines are virtual ones)
