I have now got \\ComputerName working by adding an entry into the hosts file as found in 


The entry is in the form of "IPAddress ComputerName"

I guess it means the previously dynamically assigned IP addresses may now be better as statics.

The same entry in lmhosts.sam did not seem to make any difference.

Kind regards

Added to lmhosts and same thing. It seems to resolve the netbios
correctly because it brings up a window for \\serveracrossvpn, just
shows 0 shares when there are many

You either need this entry in your lmhosts file, or put up a
server. Either option will solve this problem.
