Securely mount AppleShare volumes in one step
Authored by: mubarak on Mar 22, '08 06:18:02PM

Thanks for the tip about using the open command and escaping the afp URL. (Couldn't get it to work myself.)

However, what you are doing requires going back into Terminal and killing the process. Doesn't pass the Grandma test. Here is what you can do so that you don't have to fiddle with Terminal:

ssh -f -L 7777:localhost:548 sleep 30 ; open 'afp://user@localhost:7777/user' ; exit
