ask for user name when connecting

Reported by: Manuel Owned by: alamaison
Priority: minor (e.g. uncommon, cosmetic, has workaround) Milestone: 0.50 Address Bar
Component: authentication Version:
Keywords: Cc:



just a minor request:
configure the netdrive (host, port, folder ..), but ask for username and password when connecting, so that you don't need one drive for each user, but everybody who has acess to the server can connect.

I hope this feature doesn't already exist and I just missed it out!

Best rregards

This feature doesn't already exists.

Can you explain a little more to me how you want it to work?

Even if Swish allowed you to add a connection without a username (which would then prompt you for a username when you tried to connect) these aren't shared between local Windows users. Each Windows user would still have to set up the connection. Part of the reason is security. You don't want one Windows user to be able to change another's connections and once the connection has been made, you certainly don't want another user to be able to reuse the running connection without authenticating again.
