    I am having an issue on a Windows 2003 server that I am having a problem searching for an answer for.

    Here is the issue:

    On the local machine I CAN do the following:

    connect to a file share using \hostname
    connect to a file share using \ip_address
    connect to a file share using \127.0.0.1

    What I cannot do is connect with \hostname.domain.tld

    If I ping hostname.domain.tld I get the same IP address as pinging just the hostname. I am logged in as an administrator and this machine is on an Active Directory domain.

    The error I am running into is that when I try to go to \hostname.domain.tld, I get a username and login prompt, no domain account or local machine account authenticates successfully at this prompt.

    I have no problems connecting to \hostname.domain.tld if I connect from a REMOTE machine. I suspect some sort of local security policy, perhaps as part of group policy, but I know know which one it could be.

    PLEASE HELP.

    Thanks
