A caution on network-based aliases and the sidebar
Authored by: lieb on Nov 08, '07 06:17:21PM

I discovered this some time ago. I work with several web servers that use the same name for their document directory. So I named the folders in my Finder sidebar with the server names. Boy was I surprised when my web server coulnd't find its documents anymore. On, and these servers are Linux mounted with SMB so its not just a Mac to Mac thing.
