Ten different ways to connect to servers
Authored by: daGrimm on Apr 06, '10 09:30:54AM

Just wondering: is there an advantage of #5 over #2? I thought having an alias to the server should do the same, but wasn't too sure. Would be great if someone knew & posted - thanks!

Doesn't #5 save the password for you (although if #2 will save it in the keychain that will be better because it will be encrypted)?

#5 is better when distributing the bookmarks to different clients (if the passwords for the serveraccess are the same, of course).
Although I'm not a big fan of this "black box" aliases that may break from time to time (had that some times in my company. Maybe because of some changes at the server or client) - in the bookmarks all connection info is readable and editable when dragging the bookmark to a text document.
