      Accesing a secured external hard drive

      Post


           I would like my users to access pictures that are stored in a pasworded NAS. IS there a way from Filemaker (V10) to have a function to directly enter a user name and password at a prompt, so the user doesn´t have to type them every time he/she access the drive?

             Thanks!

               There may be a URL that accesses the NAS, depending on the software on the NAS (most are Linux  based and badly documented)
               usernames and passwords can often be appended.

               I would check the manufacturer's website for a forum that may have such an answer.

               Filemaker can open URL's with a button attached script.
