    Beyond Compare on Windows doesn't provide a way to authenticate to a Windows SMB share for a single session. I'll add it to our feature wish list for a future version.

    This is something that is on my wish-list.
    If I understand, B.C. on other platforms can use the smb syntax.
    It would be great if the same syntax could be used on Windows, combined with ftp syntax.
    So, for example, to use smb://[email protected], or something similar to this.

    Thank You and regards

  • Create a profile to authenticate to a Microsoft share for session only?

    I use BC Profiles for connecting to FTP and WEBDAV sites. I also frequently connect to Microsoft shares on the local LAN. In a BC session, these might appear as \\someserver\somefolder.

    In some cases I don't want to permanently connect with <someserver>, but only log in for the duration of the BC session.

    If I am scripting in a CMD file I can do:

    Code:
    net use \\someserver.....
    BCompare.exe" @BCscript.txt
    net use \\someserver..... /d
    From the BC UI, I have to issue the net use commands manually.

    Is there a way to use the BC profiles to do the same thing? Authenticate to the share with a securely saved password, perform the sync, and then log out of the share when the session is closed?
Working...
