I have a PowerBook. I take it to work & back to home.
After booting at each location, I need to do a lot of changing of settings, preferences, startup apps, default printer, etc.
As a first step, I would like to have PB, on boot, check which/what connection it has.
What I am trying to do is along these lines:
THEN do a whole bunch of stuff
THEN do a whole bunch of other stuff
Well, I would have to do setup/config manually.
My (WorkConnection) is to a Win2K network through LAN using smb (Go->Connect to Server and enter address - of course I have saved in Favorite so I do not have to actually type each time)
My (HomeConnection) is through Airport to cable modem
I do not have a problem actually connecting at each location, I just need a script that detects which connection is present/active, to which I could then add what other things I need done, what other settings/preferences I want.
So as a start, need to detect the connection and test which one it is.
I am newbie to Mac & AppleScript, any help would be greatfully appreciated. If it is step by step I would really love it.
I have searched around (forums, applecript.com, etc. etc.) and most of the stuff references only AppleTalk or is OS 9 or before - which I might be able to get to work, but as I am new and using OS X, do not want to go off in wrong direction.
I do understand programming & a fair amount about networking, just weak on OS X & AppleScript.
