I want to be able to access a server using a name other than its 'proper'
server name - both using NCP and UNC (in the form of \\server-alias\volume).

I've tried a load of things, but when I try mapping a drive to the alias I
get an 8884 error. When I try the UNC path, I get "No network provider
accepted the given network path".

Mapping/browsing to the real server name is fine.

Can it be done???
