Display Names vs local IP address?


is there a way to set up the router server so that it will pass on the names
of the other PCs on my home LAN? Im using XP and have a Linksys BEFSX41
router.

I am using a realvnc to monitor and control desktops on 3 other PCs and i
have to find and enter the IP address each time. If there was a name,
apparently it will display a choice. the VNC help suggested something about
DNC but I didnt see that feature in the router setup.

I also use Wallwatcher, and its supposed to show names of local machines vs
IP but I cant get it to do that either.
So im wondering if there is some routher setup thing I can do.

I have the latest firmware installed that is listed on the Linksys site.

thanks for any tips!

windows Services, might look at Computer Browser & its dependencies.
