    Attempt to automount Appleshare on demand?
    I know that with NFS you can configure the share to mount itself as needed. I have my music on a Linux box and I access via an Appleshare that I setup on that machine.

    The problem is, if I have to reboot that machine or I disconnect my Mac from the network I lose that connection. Then if I don't remember to re-mount it and try to play a song in iTunes I have issues.

    Anyone know if it's possible to create this behavior easily?

    I haven't thought real hard about it, but I am thinking it might be possible to create some way to do it with an Applescript and cronjob, but I wasn't looking for something easier.

    This may help you further with auto mounting a NFS partition.

    Great site.

    But I am such an idiot....Apparently if I try to play a song in iTunes and the drive isn't automounted it does it for me. I am not sure why I never tried it before.....stupid.

    That site will be useful in the future though, so thanks.
