Automount SAMBA (Windows) share points at boot
Authored by: cfraser on Nov 04, '06 01:05:05PM

Has anyone figured out how to _not_ hardcode the user credentials in the smb:// or afp:// URL and instead use the logged in user's credentials?

Background - I have a NAS device with a number of shares that I would like mounted at startup/login for each user. The default/guest permissions on these shares are Read-Only but I would like them mounted Read/Write using the logged in user's credentials to authenticate to the NAS.

I would have expected that NetInfo would include some support for environment variables but I've not been able to find a stitch of documentation detailing this.

Thanks very much
