automatically mounts network volumes based on what network you’re connected to February 22, 2007

Mac OS X only: Freeware application Home and Away automatically mounts network volumes, launches applications, and opens files based on what network you’re connected to.

If you carry your Mac laptop around to a lot of different networks, this tool could come in very handy. To test it out, I set up Home and Away to connect to my Windows-networked music drive – which holds my iTunes music library – when it’s connected to my apartment network, then launch iTunes, and it worked like a charm. There are, of course, quite a few inventive ways you could use Home and Away. For example, you could run it when you start up your computer to have your Mac launch a location-specific batch of applications whenever you’re connected to a particular network. Home and Away is freeware, Mac OS X only.
