Disable icon display while browsing networked drives
Authored by: DelVach on May 15, '03 12:52:56PM
Even with my 800/800 cable modem, navigating mounted drives is painfully slow unless I disable icons AND the preview column.

As a sidenote, it's pretty easy to create an SSH tunnel if your company's firewall won't let you connect. For connecting to my company's SAMBA share:

sudo ssh -L 139:sambaurl.company.com:139 myusername@firewall.company.com


Then Connect to Server: smb://localhost/ (can also specify which share to use, smb://localhost/myshare)

I also find it useful to connect to my office Mac while at home using Apple Firesharing Protocol:
ssh -L 8080:mymacIP:548 myusername@firewall.company.com
Connect to Server: afp://mymacIP:8080

Seems related. :)
