My Mac runs a daily script (via
cron) that mounts an AFP network share on a remote server, writes to it, and unmounts the share. Unfortunately, the script has a side-effect of opening a Finder window to view the network share, which pops up in the middle of the user's day, interrupting their work. Is there a way to mount the network share without opening the Finder window?
I mount the network share using the
open command (
open afp://username:[email protected]/MyVolumeName
I've already tried the
-g option (Do not bring the application to the foreground) and the
-j option (Launches the app hidden) for
open, but the Finder window still appears.
