    Auto mapping network disk
    Hi there.

    I have external LAN HDD connected to the switch.
    Im using mac mini with Lion, connected to the switch too.

    Now I have to connect LAN HDD on Mac Mini manually.

    Please help me, how to make connect network disk after startup?


    and after all... Is it possible to automatically reconnect network disk, if connection is lost?

    Thanks

    I use Automator.

    Create and Automator application using the Files and Folders library and selecting Get Specified Servers and Connect to Servers.

    Save the application and make it a login item. Then drag it to the Dock in the event you get disconnected you can relaunch the application to reconnect you.

    Thank you.

    Im using my Mac mini as a player and i dont want to connect and use mouse or keyboard to reconnect. Is there a possibility to do that without mouse or keyboard?

    Screen Sharing would work. You could even do it from your iOS device.

    I take it you have never done any sort of remote access before?

    Do you have an iOS device?

    Install WYSE PocketCloud.

    Once you enable VNC access on the Mini in the Sharing Preference you can control it from the iOS device using PocketCloud, or any remote access app of your choice.
