Shortcuts + Serving a Windows share
Authored by: Anonymous on Oct 01, '01 04:04:21PM

Is it easily possible to create a connect to shortcut? Can I just make a shortcut to the mounted directory?

Also, is it possible to share a connection to a windows box? I would like to set up a shared area on my computer that will be accessable from Windows and Macintosh boxes without extra softare on the client end. Anyone?

Nathan

When I created a shortcut and then unmounted the driver, double-clicking the shortcut reconnected me (though I had to enter the password again), but I got an error from Finder saying it couldn't find the referenced alias or something.

So, I then dragged the mounted volume to the dock. I unmounted the volume after that and then clicking on the icon in the dock remounted it with no problems (although, again, I had to type in my password)

Dragging the volume to the dock didn't work for me.

I was able to do it, but clicking it opened a window that revealed the top level of my startup disk.
