If you need a way to connect to your home Windows File Server from your Mac without dropping to the command line all the time then the following will be for you.
Open Terminal and run the following
cd ~/ mkdir Stacks cd Stacks mkdir Server_Connect cat > connect.txt mkdir /Volumes/Home mount -t smbfs //[email protected]/pathtoshare /Volumes/Home ctrl D mv connect.txt connect.command chmod 775 connect.command
Now you will be able to connect to your server by clicking the icon of that file no more having to drop to command line for you. You will be prompted for a password when you connect because you do not want to be storing that in your script
If you are like me you may also want to consider making a disconnect script so that you can disconnect when you are done, you can see the code for that below.
cd ~/Stacks/Server_Connect cat > disconnect.txt mount /Volumes/Home ctrl D mv disconnect.txt disconnect.command chmod 775 disconnect.command
Now you can pin that folder to your icon bar and be able to connect to our SMBFS based fileserver with a click if a button.
