We have an internal website that when you click a link it launches the "Connect to Server" box and mounts the smb:// share point to display the contents. The behavior of this is different between 10.6.8 and 10.8.3. Example:

 

10.8.3 -

 

1) Click link on site - smb://Example/Folder/Picture.jpg

2) Connect to Server box opens

3) Finder mounts the share smb://Example/Folder and displays the content contained in Folder

 

NOW, in 10.6.8

 

1) Click link on site - smb://Example/Folder/Picture.jpg

2) Connect to Server box opens

3) Finder tries to mount the entire path smb://Example/Folder/Picture.jpg and instead of showing the contents of Folder, it thinks it has mounted /Picture.jpg as a sharepoint. The finder window is blank with no files visible.

 

What config can we change on 10.6 that will produce the expected behavior of the 10.8.x machine?

 

Hope this makes sense. We are trying to make this compatible on all of our machines running 10.6.x to 10.8.x but the expected behavior only seems to be apparent in 10.8.x.

 

Thank you.


Mac OS X (10.6.8)
