AFP auto mount on ReadyNAS startup (OSX 10.5.5)

Hi there
Is it possible to get some of the shares automatically mounted, when the NAS ist started up? Or even better as soon as the ReadyNas is visible in the Finder? This would also allow me to connect my macbook to the network when the ReadyNas is already running and get my shares auto mounted...

Thx in advance!

wow thx this apple-script works like a charm. But this solution only works on startup of my macbook. I couln't find a solution, where the shares are mapped automatically when the ReadyNAS is starting up and the macbook is already running...

If somebody knows that I would really appreciate for telling me ;-)

✓ Solution

Maybe something like this:

Bonjour Mounter will mount your AFP or SMB share points silently in the background.
Add Bonjour Mounter to your login items to mount your share points on login without that annoying finder window popping up.
It will also automatically mount appearing bonjour enabled servers when they become available.

If you have the Bonjour discovery service enabled on the NAS, that should in theory mount when the NAS is discovered.

Your software fits a spot many Mac users need, and seems to work well, good job.
Unfortunately, I haven't mastered getting ReadyNAS's to grow on trees yet, so I can't just give you one.

It's looking for the name of the share in that field (like media).
