scripting alias creation?

I am a consultant working with a local school board. I know very little about Macs. Is there a way to script the creation of an alias when a user attaches to a network server (NetWare)? No clients are on the Macs, they are using AFP to the server. Thanks.

What does the alias point to? Where do you want it?

Applescript can create aliases, but as far as I know, there’s no way to trigger a script when the user mounts a volume, unless you had a programming looking for new mounts running all the time in the background.

Maybe you could do a script to ask for user name and password, mount the server, and then create the alias?

Google “mac lab manager” for lots of good info, esp.

There’s a mailing list and most common issues like these have solutions already written.
