Hi,

I'd like to know whether there is a way to connect to a TCP server (socket server) in an computer using his name (e.g.: my computer has a host name: MyComputer; then I must connect with it using his name).

It can be done using NBNS protocol (NetBios Name Service), but always I try to connect using his name, the Tablet uses DNS protocol instead of NBNS, as I might expct.

Does anyone know how to do it?

Thanks in advance...
