HelloYou need an static entry

Hello

You need an static entry in your dns server or pc hosts file

Just remember if you edit your hosts file  on your pc, Then your pc will always check that file before any dns server
 

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

R/C on the file = hosts  and untick read only

10.10.10.1             sw1-12

save your changes.

then - start/run/cmd
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
