One way to share links to networked files
Authored by: AntsPants on Mar 24, '09 06:38:47PM

I've been looking for this for so long, being on a network of 80 Windows machines and 20 Macs, with a Linux/Samba fileserver.

I'd tried CopyPath plugin, with a service created by a friend to open UNC paths, but neither of them worked as i wanted -- the serivce opened UNC paths sporadically, and CopyPath only gave the path as mounted on my machine (instead of the full UNC path).

I installed Winshortcutter, changed the prefs to use backslashes, and this works perfectly for me on 10.5.6.

hamarkus, thanks for the tip!
