4.6 Configuring Shortcuts to Network Folders

With KNetAttach, you can also add new network folders to this view by clicking Add a Network Folder in a Konqueror remote:/ view. A wizard opens where you can select the type of network folder to access and enter the details, such as a name for the network folder, the address of the server (either the IP address or domain name), the login name, the port, and the path to folder to access.

Figure 4-11 Adding a Network Folder

After finishing, you can access the network share in Konqueror by clicking the newly created link instead of entering a lengthy URL for this share in the location bar.

Figure 4-12 New Network Folder

If you add a network folder in this way, you can also access this folder easily when opening or saving a file from a KDE application. If you click Network Folders in the left-hand bar of an Open File or a Save File dialog, the network folder you added appears.

HINT: Linking to Network Shares on the Desktop

For quick access to network shares you need very often, you can also create links to these resources on your desktop. To do so, select the desired resource in Konqueror and drag it onto your desktop while keeping the left mouse button pressed. From the context menu, select Link Here. A new icon appears on your desktop. If you click that icon, Konqueror opens and displays the content of this directory.
