As far as TCP/IP names are concerned, I can always assign more than one hostname to the same IP. It works great, if I use this trick at the client machine, i.e. not "the server with 2 hostnames".
But with NETBIOS computer names, the situation is not that simple: System > Computer name > Change settings >
System Properties only has ONE computer name.
There is an article that shows how to assign multiple names for one computer, but they all assume a Windows server. I would like to accomplish the same but on my laptop. Is that possible?
If so, how do I go about this?
BTW, I tried the aforementioned trick of multiple names for same IP in an
lmhosts file on a client machine but that didn't work for me. I am not sure whether this is at all the right direction.
Also, I don't mind (re)typing static IP addresses and computer names as I only need to access my laptop from 1-2 other PCs, that's all.
