Ten different ways to connect to servers
Authored by: vtlucks on Apr 06, '10 09:59:30AM

You can also use the Automator and the "Connect to Servers" action.

I hadn't know about bookmarks (#5). I just set up a bunch of shares using that method and I really like it. I didn't have to specify the username and password because they were already in my keychain.

One problem I've found with all these methods is that when you show "Connected servers" on your desktop, the name is always the share name. I have 8 WinXP machines that were all set up by the vendor with the same share name (different IP addresses). It would be great if I could control the name that gets displayed on the desktop.
