I have noticed this occurring randomly on an OS 9 client. I think it has to do with the File Sharing on the server, actually. I’ve had problems where I try to log in manually, and get a disconnected message, even though file sharing is on. Turning the server’s sharing off, and then back on seemed to fix the problem for a while.
Lately I haven’t had any problems. Not sure why it stoped failing. Once it has failed once, though, it seems you need to restart the client to get it working again - very frustrating.
I am crazy, ridicuulous, spankin’, “your word here” new to Applescript, but I do understand how it works, and I have done some scripting in Flash and HTML etc. which I am hoping might give me a slight edge.
I am having a similar problem getting Applescript to log me into the server at work. I posted on the thread Automated IP Login the other day, but so far have gotten no responses.
Will the same script mentioned above work if I am on a Mac running OS 9.2.2, logging into a Windows 2000 IIS Server? If you read my post on the other thread you will see that it is a bit more involved than just what is covered here, but this would be a great start for me.
