I need to make a shell script for a command to create aliases for 500 folders in 500 parent directories. I've found one page that was useful (http://www.alvinpoh.com/how-to-make-...al-in-mac-osx/), however I need to put the aliases on several computers, and once the aliases made with that script are off my computer, the aliases are "dead," due to rights permissions, I assume.

The command works when I copy and paste the commands one by one into Terminal, but I'd rather not do that.

Example of folder structure
server/
.......people/
.............person1/
.............person2/ etc.

Example of command being used
ln -s "/Volumes/server/people/person1" /shortcuts/

Thanks for any help.
