10.4: Set 'Location' automatically via a script
Authored by: BobHarris on Jan 28, '06 06:45:30PM

I did manually change it, twice a day for several years, and you know what? It got OLD. I would forget, so my network setup had my work fixed IP address, and a proxy setup to use the company proxy server. I would go home and didn't get new mail notices, iChat would not go on-line, I would try to surf, but the proxy server I use for work isn't available at home, etc... And the reverse when I got to work, as my home setup doesn't have a proxy server, and I have the wrong IP address for work, etc... Like I said, it got old.

I've been using a Sleepwatcher based trigger, that executes a network location detection and change script for about 6 months, and it has been a joy.

Besides, I thought people that liked to read MacOSXHints, also liked to find interesting and different ways to make their Macs work for them.
