We have LAN, all computers in domain XXX.YYY so they have fully qualified names SOMECOMPUTER.XXX.YYY, IP addresses assigned by DHCP, so I have lookup type of the device set to "name to address".
I manually add new device, enter the name SOMECOMPUTER.XXX.YYY and add PING and NETBIOS services to probe. Then click OK.
The basic problem is, that no address is never resolved by the lookup process, there is still a gray box and services PING and NETBIOS are both in the state could not probe because of local problem. I guess it's because of missing IP address.
Now I display the device settings. The field Addresses is written in red color and no address is there, the field for address entering is grayed. Then I click OK to close the dialog window and a message pops out saying Error in addresses - Too few elements. Of course, there is no address at all. Moreover, I cannot shorten the lookup interval, because the OK button cannot be pressed.
What should I do now? Shall I click the black little arrow in Addresses field to enter at least one address of 0.0.0.0 and close the dialog to let The Dude to resolve the address at the next lookup? I did so but lookup never resolved anything for days.
Maybe there is some error at my configuration: If I ping at MSDOS prompt PING SOMECOMPUTER.XXX.YYY, it says something like PING command could not find the host SOMECOMPUTER.XXX.YYY. But if I ping only the computer name: PING SOMECOMPUTER, ping works.
I tried add new devices with both names SOMECOMPUTER.XXX.YYY and SOMECOMPUTER only. Neither worked.
Shortly, lookup doesn't work at all, it's never resolved any address.
Any idea where I should start to look for a problem? Maybe it's not The Dude problem. Maybe our LAN is improperly configured .
