SMB Authentication and username shortcut
Authored by: i5ao on Jun 22, '04 12:25:55PM

Mac OS X already makes it pretty easy to re-connect automatically to SMB shares you've mounted in the past.

But on my laptop, where my user name is different than my SMB account name, I would always get the authentication screen. That bothered me.

You can do the following to save that step. Use as the server address in cmd-K Connect to Server:

smb://domain;smb_username@host/share

Works for me.

Drag this to your toolbar, and replace the appropriate items:

smb://domain;smb_username@host/share
