SMB name resolve via DNS(domain) is not supported
Currently, Solid Explorer SMB name resolving system only use NETBIOS(nmbd).
But some network situation (eg vpn roadwarriors) should use DNS system (or WINS) to resolve SMB server name.
When i connect SMB server via VPN with DNS address, solid explorer says "No route to host" but use IP address It works.
So it is nessasary to support resolve SMB server name via DNS.

Great product, small annoyance, small fix: please add DNS support for SMB hostnames
Add my name to the hat here. Also, when I use IP address to connect to file server instead of host name, it takes FOREVER (40s or more) to initially connect, even on the same LAN. After that, browsing is instant.
Same here, quite annoying.

Same problem here. Please add DNS support so we can use SMB over WAN with easy.
It alread works if we insert the IP directly.
