    Connecting to an AFP server as a different user

    Hello,

    I have some "special" Macs in a media room which log on to our network (Active Directory). Students on these machines will need to connect to one of our AFP servers using Finder --> Go --> Connect to Server, however, I need them to connect as a different user.

    The Finder does not ask the user for authentication, instead using pass-through authentication to list the shares available to the user logged in to the console.

    I need to be able to force the Finder to always ask for authentication when mounting a share. It seems possible in 10.5 (Mac OS X 10.5: Connecting to an AFP server as a different user) but I need to do this under 10.4.11.

    All hints gratefully received!

    im guessing as its only a feature from 10.5.3 then the answer to the question is most likely no!

    I know there is a "connect as..." button in 10.5+, but there doesn't seem to be a way to side step the cleverness of Kerberos under 10.4, apart from un-joining these machines from the Windows domain, having 100% local accounts with local auth. Only pain with this is changing the managed prefs from group level to machine level
