This is a workflow to mount your network shares with automatic discovery. No configuration or bookmarks required! Download — stable version. Please report problems here. Your computer won't explode and your shares are safe, I promise. Troubles? Make sure that both, Apple Filing Protocol (afp) and Samba (short smb, QNAP calls it "Microsoft Network") are enabled on your NAS. Due to the nature of the protocols and the available tools on OSX, both of them are required in order to disover network shares in your network. Also note that already mounted shares are not listed in Alfred. Enable guest access to the NAS, not for a specific share, but for the system in general if things don't work. The source code is available here: https://github.com/pstadler/alfred-mount
Hi Folks, nearly every time I have to connect to my companies VPN I need the samba shares, as well. So I decided to automate connecting to VPN and mounting the shares. It is so boring to do that by hand every time. In march, I wrote about that in my blog http://bit.ly/XB7dXi (only German language). At that time I didn't know about Alfred and I started the apple scripts with the software Butler or with a double-click. Meanwhile I only use Alfred to automate the things on my Mac. I build a workflow to connect our VPN and samba shares. An it works like a charm ! The workflow I created looks that way: The scripts are still apple scripts, but I tried to make them more easy. To use them, simply open the scripts in Alfred and change the defined variables to your individual settings. It is well commented (in English, so all of us can use it, not only Germans) The connect script needs a couple of simple variables, the disconnect script only two. Credits: The part of connecting to the VPN appears first on http://blog.schmehr.de, a site that doesn't exist anymore. Feel free to give me feedback or change everything you need in the workflow. Remember, it s my first workflow and script in apple script. Maybe you have an idea to put all the stuff in one script. You can download the initial version of the workflow out of my dropbox: http://bit.ly/1caGM0p Happy connecting ;-) Kind Regards U. Ivens P.S.: You also can find an article about that workflow in my Blog.
Hello, community! I've created a new workflow to help me share smb links. - convert link like \\server\path to smb://server/path and other unix style, - convert unix paths to windows style, - automatically copied all links into clipboard. DOWNLOAD HERE For example: Windows user sent me the shared path like: \\server\shared\path\ On my Mac with Alfred, I've convert it in a seconds to unix-style, like: //server/shared/path/ afp://server/shared/path/ smb://server/shared/path/ cifs://server/shared/path/ \\server\shared\path\
Hi Firstly, this may be a feature that can be handled by the Worklows addition to Alfred, though I don't have the skills to create the required scripts... I spend a large amount of my day working off Servers. Either Windows 2003/2008 or Mac OSX Server. To access the servers I use the CMD + K shortcut to access the 'Connect to server' dialog, then choose the server I want to connect to etc etc. I'd really like to be able to invoke Alfred, type a keyword (maybe 'srv') along with the required server name and have that server mount and open in finder. Hope that makes sense, if anyone can do this with Workflows I'd love to know how they've made it happen! Cheers Steven
