Hi Devon,

This is not really a greenstone question, it's more of a network settings question. In order for Internet Explorer to recognise your other machine by its name and not its IP address you need your local area network, i.e. the network containing the two computers you mentioned to have a DNS server set up with a mapping between that computers name and its IP address.

However as they are two windows machines, it could be a firewall problem, perhaps one of the machines isnt allowing netbios packets to get through to the other. Netbios packets which allow one machine to recognize the other machine by its name.
