    VM server trouble (server can't find the host name)


    i am trying to network two Virtual Box VM's and access a shared folder using \\hostname but it is not working. when i try to do this the windows network diagnostics tells me that windows can communicate with the name resolution server but can't find the host name.

    both VM's are using windows 10 pro educational and are turned on and have access to the internet and to the same Nat Network. i used command prompt to ping the two computers and they both successfully replied. they are also clones of each other.

    what can i do to resolve this issue?
