    I've got a win2k3 Terminal Server, however I can't connect through it via computer name... I have to connect to the server via its IP address... this happened when i have the server a static IP address.

    Prior to this (while i was testing everything) it was just on DHCP.

    I know for sure the computer name is correct... because I can ping both IP and computer name, and they've got matching ip addresses.

    any help?
