pi's home

okay, I know this is not the ideal forum for this question, but I trust the advice I think I will get here over scrounging the internet and going down many wrong paths...

 

I need to know how to rename the share that shows on my desktop (on my Mac) .  The name of the server show on the left-hand side of my finder windows under Shared Servers once I connect to one.  But what shows on my desktop is "pi's home".  This is okay when I connect to one, but when I connect to multiple servers, I get many of these.  If I click on 'server A' in Finder, it also shows "pi's home".  While this is techniclly "correct" behavior, how can I rename these shares to be custom names?  This is true of local servers and of some I can access over the internet. 

And yes, these are my devices so I do have full control over setting on both ends, I just do not know what to do to change things.

 

TIA

SOLVED! I finally figured

SOLVED!

 

I finally figured this out after much trial and error.

 

The short of it is that I needed to remove the [Homes] listing and replace it with the generic AFP volume listing. So basically:

[Homes]

basedir regex = /home

becomes

[My AFP Volume]

path = /home/pi

This mounts the "home" directory for pi as "My AFP Volume" (or whatever other name I give) whereas the Homes method posts it as "pi's home". Doing this way still allows read/write access and I can change the icon to be something Mac Friendly if I do not want the default icon.
