    @ Rajinder

    Thanks for the link worked a treat. First time.

    Only question for you or other people. How can I get this to run the command automatically so the drive is there after boot ?

    I gussed it wouldn't work adding to user-startup as Im guessing network not up by the time this is run, and I was right.

    I know in Genisis and Miami you could get it to run a script or program when the stack connected is this possible in MorphOS?

    Also FTP worked but thats not much good for using as network drive, but thanks for the info

    Hey JJ,

    Just add the script (or a link to the script) to your WBStartup drawer.

    That should allow the network to initialise prior to mounitng the drive (works for me, anyway).

    Regards

    @ boot_wb

    Thanks that was going to be my next test. Does the file have to have a certain extension or does it need to have a project icon or whatever it was back in the day. been a long time since I used AmigaOS for anything serious

    When you save the script file, it should save with a project icon anyway (depending on your editing application of choice).

    If there is no .info file, just copy an .info file from anywhere else and rename it to be the same as your script filename but with an .info extension (eg if your script file is called 'script1', name the .info file as 'script1.info').

    Once there is an icon, just make sure the script flag is set (select the icon, go to information, ensure 'script' box is ticked).

    It should now mount the shared drive upon startup, appearing as an icon on your desktop. If the shared drive is not switched on when you start your MorphOS machine, then it will simply not be mounted.

    To avoid annoying con window opening, you may want to add the >NIL: option, eg:

    run >nil: STACK=65536 SMBFS workgroup=[your workgroup name] user=[user name] service=//[share host name]/[share path] volume=[whatever name you want it mounted as]

    From memory, it is also important to add the "stack=" arguement, but I'm sure that the readme will have explained this.

    Best Regards

    Other users have reported problems (freezing, failure to copy large files, etc) with the default stack size.

    Also, in another thread Piru recommends increasing the stack size to 32768: I've never known him advocate anything which sacrifices resources for no reason.

    Well at least in this way:

    in user-startup:
    Code:

    ; BEGIN network-user-startup
    run <>nil: execute s:network-user-startup
    ; END network-user-startup

    Then create s:network-user-startup and have the following in it:
    Code:

    waitforport NETSTACK L=30 ; wait network stack to appear (max 30 secs)
    if not warn
    wait 2 ; give network some time to settle, if apps still fail, raise the value
    ;
    ; *** start whatever stuff you want here ***
    ; ...
    ;
    endif

    There is a far more easy way.

    Just create the file "s:network-startup" and place the following lines

    ;--- launch network stack
    execute MOSSYS:s/network-startup
    ;--- now run any other network depending tools
    run DETACH MOSSYS:c/Setclockntp

    Thats all. This script sets the system clock on system boot.

    We should place a dummy file for this which gets installed if there is no such file. :)
