I would suggest that this is not a forms issue but network visibility on that particular client. If you open a command prompt and enter "ping srv" you will probably get a "could not find host" error.
If you check in your hosts file, located somewhere like %windir%\system32\drivers\etc if you're on windows and depending on the version.
In the file there should be an entry
You are talking about "hosts" file in the server !
It has entry
What should I do now ?

You just need to put ur ip address and hostname like this
as Sham has explained, but in the "hosts" file on the local pc not the server and also the other way round
It's the local file which will be used to translate the name "srv" into the IP address of "192.0.0.1" for the local pc network software to be able to "look out" to that address.
So that when you request "srv" the "hosts" file can be inspected and the IP address of "192.0.0.1" returned as the translation
Thanks ROD, SHAM,MH,SOOFI for your valuable advice !
