For example, I do not see the computer on the network that has the printer shared. The network consists of router, main computer connected to the printer and other computers connected to the router. As knowing the name of the computer to connect to it? I forgot really how it's done, as if lost its.
That's the type //WIN-COMPUTERNAME need to add somewhere...

@irwin.Rohan7 Is if the name will resolvida to an IP address (usually this is via DNS, but there are options). - Tyrel_Lueilwi commented on April 7th 20 at 11:11

I fully agree with the previous speaker). But I would recommend to use the ip \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\, solely because of wine-networks with names can happen strange things. Starting with the fact that the names prohinited after 2-3 minutes after booting to the fact that, in principle, is not there. With ip this usually happens.
