Your best friend for file transfer.Fetch
You can make Fetch automatically start up with the information for your favorite server, or the server containing your website, by setting up a default shortcut. A default shortcut will fill out the hostname and username fields every time the New Connection dialog is displayed, such as when you start Fetch.
To create a default shortcut:
- Choose File > New Connection, if the New Connection dialog isn't already showing.
- Enter the name of the server in the Hostname field.
- If your connection requires a username and password, enter them in the appropriate fields.
- If you want your password to be filled out automatically when you use this shortcut, check the Add to keychain checkbox.
- Click the Shortcuts pop-up menu, and choose Make Shortcut.
- Enter a name for the shortcut. This can be anything that makes it easy for you to identify the shortcut later on.
- Check the Make this the default shortcut checkbox.
- Click the OK button.
- Click Connect to connect and create the shortcut.
If you're not sure what information to enter in the New Connection dialog, see the What do I enter in the hostname, username, and password fields? help topic.
For more information about the fields and options in the New Connection dialog, see the New Connection dialog in-depth help topic.
If you want to make an existing shortcut the default, or change the default shortcut after you've created one, use the Default shortcut pop-up menu in the General Preferences pane.
If you would like Fetch to automatically connect to the server without needing to enter or confirm any information, you should create a droplet shortcut.
