Can't Connect Via Hostname

    Hey all,
    We have 8 tiny pilots in use across our multiple locations, all the locations are connected via an internal network.

    The issue I am having is I am having is I can only connect to one of the 8 via the hostname. I have changed each one from the default tinypilot. As it stands right now I can connect via the IP address, which I have configured to be Static.
    When I try to connect to a tinypilot, I get the "This site cannot be reached" error in chrome.

    I am open to ideas, I wanted to rule out issues on the Tinypilot side, before I have to get IT involved.

    Thanks all!!

        Definitely sounds like something related to IT, as changing the hostname should work. Probably some firewall limiting NetBIOS information though some given switch, etc.

        Id check with 'pathping' [ip] in cmd.exe and see what that shows vs 'pathping' [hostname]

            I figured, wanted to rule out an issue on my end before I had the network boys come help
