I use four instruments on a private LAN. They are connected by ethernet to a Netgear GS105 switch, which is connected to my computer.
The IP addresses are set to default (DHCP). Because the address changes every time I reboot the instrument, this is not very convenient. I used to be able to access them using their netBIOS names, instead of the IP addresses. That was very helpful.
Recently I had to unplug and move all of the equipment, including the computer, the switch and the Keysight instruments. When I turned it all back on, the netBIOS name access no longer works. The only way I can communicate with the instruments is with the IP addresses, which I'd prefer not to do.
How do I connect with only the netBIOS name? There must be some setting that I've missed, something that reset when I powered everything down.
