    @toshiaki Jump supports Bonjour name resolution.

    Try this - I think it'll work for you:

    1. Make sure your computer has Bonjour installed: To do this either install iTunes on your Windows machine or install Bonjour Print Services (use Bonjour Print Services if you're unsure since it's a smaller download).
    2. Then open up Jump and tap the + button to add a manual connection to your PC. In the Host field put your computer's name but make sure you add a suffix of .local to the name: 
    • For example: If your PC's name is toshiaki use toshiaki.local as the computer's name in Jump (the .local part is really important).
  • Try connecting to your computer (make sure you're on the same LAN though)

    Thank you for the answer. The host name has been solved when adding ".local" to the end of the host name. If explanation is indicated on the screen, it is good. It is regrettable as it does not correspond to the automatic detection of netbios or pc in LAN. Don't you think that it is inconvenient?

    Yes, it is inconvenient. Netbios name resolution is on our list of features to implement - we'll look into it.

    Thanks.
