Thanks Louis for the reply.
I will have to check the version when I get home but I *believe* it's 1809. I have several windows 10 partitions with a multi-boot manager on my various drives that I use for different things and they all seem to exhibit this behavior. I haven't tried this in Windows 7 which I also have.
I have a firewall on my internet connection so I have the Windows Firewall disabled on all my internal computers. It just causes issues and usually when I need to remotely access something across a vpn when I'm 1000s of miles away from my network.
Client for MS networks is there and I will have to check again but the dns suffix I checked before and it was set correctly (to webb.local)
I'm guessing it's not the IP stack but I could be wrong. I only say that because it's happening on all my Windows 10 partitions. Now if the source IP stack is gone (the one I cloned the partitions from) then that would make sense and is possible.
