That makes no sense to me, and I have never seen this behaviour. If it happens to me it is always because the vmware obtained a different IP addres from the router, as zero pointed out.

Try using the name of the vmware folding client instead of the IP address (ie. \\Fold-d2a5\c\etc\folding\1\). To get the name (ie. Fold-d2a5), check your computer's "My Network Places" (XP) or similar on Vista (I forget what this is called in vista and 7..on an XP machine now). I also make sure that each of the vmware clients are in the same workgroup as my computers. This is done in the same config page of the vmware client where you entered your username, and team number. Try this if you don't see the computers in the "My Network Places" to obtain the name.

As for fahmon changing the locations, I cannot help you with that if I can't duplicate the issue and have never seen or heard of it.

notfred's will also list the hostname when it starts up.

Sorry Chris and Zero, they're telling the truth... Hell, I thought I was going nuts, but only recently it started happening. The actual client name or the location will change by itself.... don't ask me why... It's true and it drives me bonkers! :)

Sorry guys I don't doubt it happens I just need to make sure I fully understand whats up. I have done some research to see what might cause it and I did find a couple of posts where it was mentioned, but no fixes/reasons offered why (I have three installs of it running and never saw the issue yet, but will keep a close watch).

In all honesty if the problem persists then FahSpy might be a better solution. I know if FahMon started changing names or paths on me randomly then I would be pretty annoyed. I looked for a quick guide to setting up FahSpy for the newbies but did not see something good. Perhaps later this fall when i get more time I'll try a guide for FahSpy then, unless someone can dig up a great guide in the meantime....

FahSpy:

Install.
Click Add folder.
Add location of work folder, or use the same address from the Notfred client.
Folder alias: add a name for that particular client, which will be shown in the main viewing window.
That's it.

Haha yup...at least the fahMon guide is good to aid in locating the work folders for the various clients.

Indeed! All I tried to say was that both apps are very similar, and doing a Fahspy how-to based on your Fahmon thread would be very simple.
