From the Finder toolbar click "Go" and then "Connect To Server" and input your IP address. Unless your drive supports AFP (Apple Filing Protocol) you will need to change the address to smb (Server Message Block) so it looks similar to the following without the quotes "smb://192.168.1.100"
Once you have accessed your external drive you can then right click (CMD-Click) the folder you want a shortcut to and click "Create Alias" (Apple calls shortcuts Aliases). You can then drag the new Alias anywhere you would like.
Hope this answers your question.
