Connection to SMB server under Mac OS 10.4.8

Why to generate a script:

  • one could simply place and alias on the desktop after the first connection to th SMB server. for some bizzar reason this is not always working out (error -37).

Better write an AppleScript:

tell application "Finder"
mount volume "smb://your_workgroup;your_login:your_passwordr@your_smb_server_IP/your_shared_folder"
end tell
  • replace your_... with the corresponding login, passowrd, etc.
  • Save as... Fileformat: application, no checkbox checked.
  • Place this on your desktop or whereever you like instead of the alias.
  • Double click to connect.
