Use logged in user's credentials automatically when connecting to a share?

Unread post by SeSub3 » Sun Sep 23, 2018 7:37 pm

Is it possible to have the Mac try using the logged in user's credentials when connecting to a share (SMB or AFP)? Basically, I'm curious to see if it can behave the same as it does for Windows. On Windows, if the logged in user's credentials matches a user on the NAS, it will connect automatically when going to //Server/Share. On the Mac, it seems to always prompt for the username and password. Is it possible to replicate Window's behavior on a Mac? I know I could just save the username/password in Keychain, but just wanted to see if there was another way to do this so it is a little more seamless/automatic.

If it makes any difference, I'm using a DS218+ with the latest version of DMS installed. I'm also using the latest version of High Sierra (soon-to-be Mojave).
