Alias for network drive

February 17Hits:1

In the Finder > Connect To Server window I have an IP address I connect to. Is there a way to make a nickname or alias for this server?


You can create aliases directly to network shares the normal way, by right-clicking the mounted share and choosing "Create Alias." If you want to create an alias/bookmark to the server so you can select which share to mount every time, do the following:

  1. Open Safari
  2. Bookmark any page to make a new bookmark
  3. Edit the bookmark to point to your server and service. For Windows sharing, the URL would start with smb:// followed by your IP address, ex smb://
  4. Drag the bookmark out of the Safari bookmarks view onto your desktop

Try adding the following line to your /etc/hosts file:     alias.local
