Variation on the alias method
Authored by: hamarkus on Apr 06, '10 09:14:51AM

I know this falls under alias but I find it much more palatable to have a couple of servers in the Finder sidebar than in the Dock or on the Desktop. Most of the time you need access to a server is when you are in the Finder (or in a open dialogue which also shows the Finder sidebar).
There is one caveat though, you cannot drag a server (or a server share) into the sidebar, only folders from that share. Thus, just drag a commonly used top-level folder into the sidebar instead.

Variation on the alias method
Authored by: BiL Castine on Apr 07, '10 05:44:00AM

Actually, you can drag a share to the top of the sidebar with the other volumes, but it's only visible when the share is mounted via another method (see this hint). I have 9 different shares that only show up when they are mounted (in my case, via an alias in a folder on the dock) and have a nice little eject icon next to each of them.
