After a reboot I couldn't access by box anymore by name - just by IP...

I remoted into the box and looked at the Event Viewer and saw this bonjour error:

"Bad service type in SERVERNAME._digiarty_streamer._tcp.local. Application protocol name must be underscore plus 1-14 characters. See <http://www.dns-sd.or...rviceTypes.html>"

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance...

What happens when you ping the system via its hostname?

Running airplayit by any chance on the whs?

also just rdp into the system and ping localhost does it resolve the name?
sounds like either
1: problem caused by that airplayit
2: lmhost issue
3: winsocks issue
