In a windows XP professional, connected to a fortissl VPN.
The machine is connected to a router that gives local addresses with DHCP.
The machine is not in a domain. No domain controller.
From <computer name>, ping <computer name> gives the address of the VPN virtual adapter (when connected) instead of the IP of the local network. Note I ping from the SAME MACHINE, so it's an internal resolution.
Defining in hosts or lmhosts does now work.
