I want my mac connect to some network storage when it start up. So i created a automator app with "get specified servers" and "connect to servers".
Some folders of a servers was set to allow guest to view content only. my mac automatically connect that folder as guest.
So I would like to know how to set the automator to connect that folder with specified account, so that i can have right to right and write.
Thanks.

    Using the Finder, mount the volume from the server.

    Using the Finder, create a Mac OS X Alias of the mounted volume.

    This will capture the account used to mount the volume.

    If you want this volume mounted when you login, put the
    alias in your System Preferences -> Accounts -> Startup Items

    If you want to open it via an Automator workflow, then just have
    Automator open the alias, and the alias will do the rest.

    Thanks for your suggestion.
    However, is there anyway that OSX can connect to, let say, 2 different folder in a single network storage with 2 accounts?
    for example, i am trying to connect "afp://NAS1/public" with "guest" while "afp://NAS1/private" with "pandadnap" account?

    I'm sure that you have got it working now, however the way for anyone else to achieve this for theabove file directory would be to connect to the following "afp://USERNAME:PASSWORD@NAS1/private"
