Hello i have got my first mac, and its working fine, but i have some problems! i have got file sharing working fine, i can see my windows machines on the mac etc etc but my real real bug bear is that when im using an app like vnc or mapping a drive i have to type in 192.168.XX.XX instead of just being able to type in "WinLaptop" if i go to network,home, i see my windows machines? and its the same for ping, i need to know the ip and not the host name how can i get osx to work via host names? i edited the host file and this worked, but my ips change as i use dhcp , am i typing something wrong? for example, do i need type in vnc ://home/grantslaptop ??? thanks everyone!!
