I'm facing a strange issue on Windows XP SP3: I can't browse a network share when using the IP address of the server – while I can, using the server's name.

See example below:

    C:\SMAC\ARCHE>nslookup dc-mavau
Serveur :  dc-mavau.groupe.sa.colas.com

Nom :    dc-mavau.groupe.sa.colas.com

C:\SMAC\ARCHE>net view \\
La liste est vide.

C:\SMAC\ARCHE>net view \\dc-mavau
Ressources partagées de \\dc-mavau

Nom du partage  Type    Utilisé comme  Commentaire

BE              Impr.                  BE
CANON           Impr.                  CANON

Anyone have an idea?

  • What IP shows up if you ping dc-mavau? – David Schwartz Dec 14 '11 at 8:14
