Question...
Authored by: chad_c on Mar 22, '02 05:29:03PM

I log into my WinME machine with:

smb://username:password@IPaddress/share_name

IPaddress can be substituted with the name of the computer (as entered on the Identification tab of the Network control panel).

The first time it asks for the workgroup name, but all other times it immediately mounts the computer with no dialog box.

******BUT, doing things this way allows anyone to see your username and password for the Win machine (the Connect to Server... dialog box automatically fills in the last server accesed). Not a problem for me, but me be a problem for others.

Thank you. I will try this, and hope it works as well for me. I too don't have an issue with the name/pass being visible because I'm the only one that uses the laptop, and the shares in question are on private networks.
