Help with Connecting to Windows Network links
Can anyone offer some insight.
How can I make it an easy task to connect to a Windows network location from a link sent from a PC user to a Mac OSX snow leopard machine.
Colleague is using a windows machine, sends me a link to a network folder/file
it comes over as a link
but in Mac I cannot simply click on the link and navigate to the network location. I have to first copy the link, then go to finder, click connect, append SMB at the beginning of the string and then am forced to mount the drive.
I want to simply click the link and have a finder window open to the network location.
Is this a setting in OSX, you would think it would be native to the OS.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I searched and thumbed through many many posts but I cannot find an exact answer, maybe I am not using the correct key words for searching as I am sure this has been brought up before.
Thanks in advance.

You need to mount the drive
Adding smb: before the link is the correct way to do it and you will need to authenticate and mount the share before being able to access it.
Hope this helps.
