    I need some help with creating an alias to a couple of folders on my server at work. I need two aliases:
    afp://***.grimsby.ac.uk/students1/
    afp://***.grimsby.ac.uk/students2/

    But I'm not sure how to make these. I can't do the cmd+option+drag trick as then it wont work unless the students are logged in as me.

    So is there anyway to create the alias manually?

    Never mind! I figured it out.

    Connect to the folder you want to share, then press cmd+up arrow to go up a level. Now drag the share point holding cmd+alt and bobs your uncle.
