Network Alias


Network AliasCommand+K is great for connecting to a network location. But if you’ve got lots of different servers and shares in your midst the list can get cluttered. Sometimes it’s hard to find the server you’re looking for.
Lucky for you, the answer is simple. Create an alias for the resources you frequently access. When you click the alias you’ll automatically be connected to the server. The screencast example uses a Windows server. But you could use the same technique to connect to a Mac-based share.

Check back later in the week. We’ve got more networking tips on the way.

  1. There are many situations in which these aliases can become broken. I recommend using .webloc and .afploc files in the Dock instead.
