I currently work in an organisation which is mostly Windows users but there are some including myself using Linux here.
We have a shared storage drive which we use for sharing files between us and I very often receive emails with a link to a file in the shared storage. Most of these links are sent from windows users and so have a link like
Z:\storage\file and so when using windows it is easy to copy into a browser or explorer window or just click a hyperlink. However on linux we can access it using the intranet e.g
http://intranet/storage/file or by a mounted folder
I'm trying to set up a way to alias
file:///media/storage/ so when I click a windows link it opens the file instead of having to copy part of the link and type part of the Linux location. Currently I get the error saying
Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (z) isn't associated with any program
which is to be expected when I click one of the windows links.
Is there any way I can achieve this?
