Hi

I'm using a MBP with Leopard and when I'm at work I connect to a server using the go connect to server from within the finder menu,

This works fine but is there a way of making this happen automatically every time so I don't have to connect manually each time?

Thanks

In the Leopard finder there is the SHared section. The server should show up there. There is a connect as option. Just save the login information when connecting to the server and you can access it there.

Or,...

Once connected to the server add the network drive as a login item to have it auto mount.

In System Preference > Accounts select your user the n login items, then "+" then browse to the share.
