Using Windows scripts in Macintosh (For accessing network shares)
Posted on 2004-09-23
We use a piece of software called PAS that is used on our Windows print server to keep track of how many documents people print. We set them up with an account in Active Directory to grant them access to the print server, and then set them up with an account on PAS. On their workstations, we setup a batch file to run on startup, giving them access to the print server so they can print documents. We also adjust the hosts file to point to the print server.
The script we load onto the PC's looks like this:
net use \\intrepid\ipc$ password /user:username
We have a new client in the building that has 2 macs .. one is running OS 9 and one is running OS 10. I am pretty clueless as to how to set this up on the Mac. If anyone could shed some light on how to set this up on a mac, and if there is a "hosts" type file on macs like on pcs, that would be appreciated.
