Hello All, and thanks in advance for your assistance

I have a Linux Ubuntu server set up with a few Samba shares, and I would like to have a directory in my Mac point to one of those shares and automount it. It would even be better, but not necessary, if the Mac could figure out I was in my local network and connect that way, or if not, connect via my VPN connection.

Basicall, when I browse to /Users/[username]/Music on my mac, I want it to show the contents of //[server ip]/[share name]/[folder name]

while ( ! (success = try()) );
