    I want to mount a non-standard filesystem via an http link. It's similar to WebDAV, but also involves some client-side encryption. It currently works properly on Windows, but there are some issues with getting Finder to recognize it on reboot. It can be mounted via Finder->Go->Connect.

    Two questions.

    1. How do I get it to mount automatically such that Finder will recognize it?
    2. Assuming I can do that, should it therefore work as a storage area for Time Machine, or are there other requirements?

    If there's a commonly available document covering this, feel free to point me at it.

    I'm hoping I haven't bitten off the task of implementing a complete HFS+ filesystem here.

    Search these forums, there have been several discussions on automatically mounting volumes.

    Time Machine is part of Leopard which is not publicly available yet, so wait until Leopard is released for an answer on that. Basically: no one knows except some us developers - and we ain't talking ;)
