Is there a way to create a direct link to a file on an internal network share on Mac OS X. In windows you can do this with file://filepath, but I can't find a solution that works on Mac
It works great for me when using
I'm unclear exactly what it is you want to do. You say, "local network share", but the example you give suggests a link to a local filesystem, rather than a network share (and Karl's answer demonstrates this latter functionality).
I believe it is possible to link to a network share in windows, with a URL such as:
That's "file://" + "//servername/share/").
You can accomplish the same thing on OS X using an smb: URL. For example, the link equivalent to the previous example would be:
Clicking on this in Safari does exactly what you would expect (connects to the network share and opens a window in the Finder).
