Is the DNS and laptop connected to a main host router or are you directly connecting the LT to the DNS?

Well if it's connected to the router and ON, it will get an IP address from the router. Have the LT connect to this IP address in a web page. Look at the routers DHCP client table to see what the IP address maybe for the DNS.

To get to the DNSs shared folders if thats what your referring too, do a Map Drive and connect to \\IPaddressofDNS\Volume_1 or Volume2 if you have two drives in the DNS.

\\192.168.0.#\Volume_1
