    Defik macrumors newbie

    Oct 8, 2011

    Im using macmini on Snow leopard+xbmc and im playing movies from network storage. Sometimes network place is disconnecting. Then I have to shut down xbmc and reconnect network storage again and then restart xbmc.

    Is there a way how to automatically reconnect network place, when disconnect happends?

    Thanks for help.

    OK, I'm guessing yours is an SMB (Windows) share, so you might have to modify this...

    I've got a RAID array on a Ubuntu Linux box exported as an AFP share. In order to get it to auto-mount I added this to /etc/fstab

    kubuntu:/raid /Volumes/kubuntu_RAID_Array url browse,automounted,url==afp://username:password@kubuntu._afpovertcp._tcp.local/kubuntu_RAID_Array 0 0
    Note that 'username' and 'password' are those required on the remote device.

    For your xbmc, I would guess you would need to replace 'url==afp:.....' with something like this - note that the double '=' is required, it's not a typo.
