10.3: Easy access to AppleTalk shares in Panther
Authored by: blgrace on Dec 15, '03 08:11:10PM
Will this tutorial include: 1. How to get to OS 9 Desktop on a shared volume? This trick never works for me now under 10.3.1 unless I do it via AppleScript. I haven't worked out how to access the OS 9 desktop of a machine running Panther FROM a machine running OS 9 via the chooser - the aliases are broken. The following AppleScript works for Panther to Panther tho:
 tell application "Finder"
	mount volume "afp://IP Address/VolumeName" as user name "your user name" with password "your password"
	make new Finder window to item "Desktop Folder" of disk "VolumeName"
end tell
