URL format for samba shares
Authored by: ethomas on Jun 27, '03 04:35:16AM

The url should be in the same format as the one shown in the first comment by Gonzonia:

smb://<WORKGROUP>;<USER>:<PASSWORD>@<MACHINE>/<SHARE>

<WORKGROUP> can be left out if it's not required. <SHARE> can also be left out, but you'll get a dialogue box requesting you to pick a share if you don't specify one, which defeats the object of automatically logging in like this!

i tried this in Safari (1.0 v85) and got the message 'Cannot go to "smb://<your text here>" because Mac OS X doesn't recognize addresses beginning with "smb:"' Any other ideas?
