    MRC does it work on different subnets?

      Hello,

       

      I am able to connect to workstation on the exact subnet I am on, but not to other subnets withing the same building.

       

      I am trying to figure out if this is a limitation of mrc or am I configuring something incorrectly?

      Also, I looked up a name on a PC, tried to connect to it and somehow connected to a totally different workstation?

      I doubl-checked name and IP of workstations and again, somehow connected to the incorrect workstation. Not sure how or why this may have happened.

       

      Thank You,

          This is typically a function of DNS not being properly updated after a DHCP lease changes.

          As a result, DNS returns a "stale address" for the host being queried, but that "stale address" is now in use by another host.

           

          Starting point would be to reconcile DHCP and DNS, and make sure that DHCP Clients are properly registering their leases with DNS.
