A collection of tips on accessing Windows file servers
Authored by: drtofu on Apr 11, '06 09:42:05AM

Another tip is that if your windows user name has a space in it (like mine does), you can use the %20 encoding in the SMB url:

smb://user%20name:password@servername

I haven't gotten keychain to work with user%20name, however, so the password is plain to see in the SMB URL.
