I'm using Ubuntu as an AFP server (c/o netatalk) and everything is working fine as far as seeing the server in Finder and connecting to the shares. Whenever I first select the server in Finder, it briefly says 'Connecting...' and about 3 seconds later it says 'Connection Failed'. Obviously Finder is attempting to connect to the share and my question is whether it's trying using the current account credentials or is it trying using guest credentials. I would like to automatically connect without the need of selecting 'Connect As...' and entering my credentials over again. I'm using the same credentials on both the server (Ubuntu) and client (Leopard). Is this possible?

Thanks in advance,

    I think that it will remember (via keychain) how you connected before and attempt to connect as that user/password.

    If that is not working, you could try Bonjour Mounter.

    You should be able to create a Mac OS X Alias of the mounted volume. The alias should remember the connection method and account information.

    If you drag that alias into System Preferences -> Accounts -> Startup Items, the volume should be mounted when your login to your Mac OS X account.
