Hello Olivier,
If you can't access a server share by ip and not by his name it's probably a DNS configuration problem.
Either it's missing from you windows 10 settings or there is a problem with the host file on it. 

You can modify both with the correct DNS server settings (if your samba server is registred there) or the hosts file in the windows 10  with the correct name and ip address that matches for this server.
Hope this helps you.
