Safari mounts FTP sites in the Finder
Authored by: shagstlm on Dec 09, '03 01:38:34AM
if you modify the file ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.LauncherServices.plist by going into the terminal and typing emacs ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.LauncherServices.plist do a ctrl-s and type ftp if it isn't the first item just hit ctrl-s and you'll find it eventually...it will look like
<key>U:ftp</key>
go down to where it says
<string>"yourftpclientname"</string>
change that to
<string>com.apple.finder</string>
then go down to the bottom of the group to where it says
<string>"yourftpclientname"</string>
change that to
<string>MACS</string>
hit ctrl-x ctrl-s and you are set to go you can verify that it was changed by looking at the IE preferences or the prefpane "More Internet" Always before you do anything to these files make a backup incase something goes wrong just copy the backup back into the folder and replace the messed up item...hope it works for ya chris
