Whenever I enter the IP address of my machine in order to access Dashboard from another machine it changes automatically to the host name and I get the following error:

This site can’t be reached server DNS address could not be found. Try running Windows Network Diagnostics.

But when i access it on the local machine dashboard opens and no DNS problem.

How can i prevent the ip address from changing to the host name automatically?

TBH, this sounds like a Windows problem rather than an Openstack one. If your hostname isn't in DNS, I'd put it there if you possibly can.

IP address to Hostname changing in the URL is possibly because of a HTTP redirect (Core 303 or 307). This can be verified using some tools like foxy proxy or other http debugger.

However a simple fix would be to make a manual hostfile entry mapping the FQDN to IP address of the Controller.
