Using Shortcut to my domain (8 posts)

    Hi

    I always use the the short cut logo to use fetch to up load files. How do I see the username settings I installed in the shortcut Icon.

    Hi Michael,

    I'm sorry, but we need some clarification in order to best answer your question - do you have a shortcut droplet icon that you drag files to upload them, or are you talking about a shortcut that is listed in the Fetch Shortcuts file after you open Fetch?

    Thanks,

    The shortcut droplet is on the desktop on my mac. I double click it and fetch comes up to use.

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Here's the best way to find out that information:

    * Open the droplet shortcut to connect to your server.
    * Select a file in the Fetch file list.
    * Click the Get Info button.
    * In the info window, you'll see the a line for the file's "Location." That shows the URL, which includes the username (it's after the ftp:// and before the @ sign).

    I'm sorry there's not a more convenient way to do this currently; I'm going to file an entry in our problem database about it.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions.

    Thanks,

    Thanks but I am looking for the Host Name, Username and Password

    Hi Michael,

    Okay, there are a couple of different ways to find the hostname.

    Here are new instructions which will show you both the hostname and username at the same time (it will not show you the password, I'll come back to that):

    * Double-click the droplet shortcut to open a connection to your server.
    * Once the connection is open, go to the Shortcuts menu, and choose New Shortcut.
    * This will show you both the hostname and username for that shortcut.
    * You can just cancel the New Shortcut dialog once you've copied down the hostname and username information.

    Fetch stores passwords for shortcuts in the Mac OS X keychain. You can use the Keychain Access application to discover the password saved for a shortcut. Here's how:

    * Open the Keychain Access application, which is in the Utilities folder inside your Applications folder.
    * Look for an entry whose Name is the name of the server specified in the shortcut, and whose Kind is "Fetch password" (or possibly "Internet password").
    * Display the entry's details by double-clicking on the entry (Mac OS X 10.4 or later) or clicking once on the entry (Mac OS X 10.3).
    * Click the "Show password" checkbox.
    * When prompted, enter your keychain passphrase (usually the same as your Macintosh login or administrator password) to display the shortcut's password.

    Thanks,
