File Sharing using the hostname

Hi All, 


I need help on this. I have a IAP-325 installed, when i connect my laptops on this AP, i am unable to share files between them using hostname though i am able to share it via IP addresses. 

this seems to be an issue just with Aruba AP, as i have couple of more APs with different vendor on which i am able to share the files using the hostname.

Re: File Sharing using the hostname

The problem could be caused by multiple issues. Questions I have or things I would check:


  • What configuration are you using on your SSID?
  • Is it connected to a bridged VLAN or are you using L3 on the IAP and acts the IAP as DHCP server?
  • Can you resolve the hostnames when you perform a nslookup or a ping to the hostnames?
