Hi

Scenario:

In the office we have a server with a few drives I mount on my desktop using the Go command in the finder via SMB.

However, I have to do this every morning when I get in as the connection is lost when I leave the local network.

Any way to automatically mount the drives when I am connected to the right network? I know it's possible to manually mount via an alias or on login, but I never log in our out and I don't want to do the manual connection every time.

Any ideas?
Florian
