When trying to restore or FLR from manifest to possibly get around other issue or for testing purposes you get error stating cannot connect to respoitory.
Some work around require trying to use IP address, however that still errors connecting to repository. You may also notice that when trying to use IP address the address line for the repo changes back from \\IP -address\share to \\FQDN\share.
This issue can occur when you already have the the repository entered into vRanger using fqdn. vRanger sees they are the same and defaults back to fqdn, thus making the use of ip address for work around purposes not possible.
To get around this issue either:
1. Temporaily remove repository from vRanger.
2. Reconfigure repo ini vRanger to use IP address.
