I have a shared folder on my server
Terminal03, the folder is on
D:temp, the shared path is
\Terminal03temp and there is a dns record
apps which points to
The folder is accessible for all domain users, either by
\appstemp. I tested it with some users on different terminals.
If I open
\localhottemp on the server itself it works too.

which requires going to the router and back to the server.
The loop required for getting an answer back looks like:
Most consumer-grade routers are not capable of supporting such connections,
and your router must be one of those.
