10.4: Set 'Location' automatically via a script
Authored by: Cerberus on Jan 28, '06 02:21:01PM

I think that this script would be incredible for those that have MANY choices or want to make more changes than Apple allows/facilitates with just the LOCATION tag, like printer changes, and these choices can be selected repeatedly (and I like this solution due to the cost involved. Free is a very powerful choice)

Possible example: Home on the wireless, then put the book to sleep and travel to work. Wake the book and it knows that you are at work (via a DHCP IP lease on your NIC) so it sets WORK and sets your work printer to default. Now you have to go to the remote office and so you sleep the book again and when you plugin and wake it up it knows, due to a DIFFERENT IP on the NIC that you are at REMOTE and makes ALL the necessary changes.

This could even set different Remote Configs or firewall changes etc ad infinitum.
