How can client automatically connect to MC server?
« on: February 28, 2005, 06:56:24 am »

Hello,

I want to setup a machine within our LAN so that when someone starts MC it automatically connects with my running MC server on the LAN.

Furthermore this client shouldn't be bothered with the 'Shall I search the drives for you'-dialogue from MC: can I switch that one off?

Assign the server address in Library Manager to a new library. MC will start with it if it was used the last time.

Actually, I would like to see that optional. Quite often I forget to change back to the local library before closing MC. I don't always have the server running. It would be good to have an option for the default startup library.

If this is an enhancement you're going to do, may I suggest that one of the choices for the default library be "none".
With this setting, when MC is started, it would simply open to a prompt to select a library from the possible choices.
Click and go after that.

OK, I'll jump in..


Another feature I'd love to see is the option to reuse a library download from a previous session. In other words, MC would check to see if it already had a library from the selected server at startup (or when another server is selected), and if it did, it could prompt to see if you wanted a refresh.

My library takes about 2 minutes to download, so I notice this stuff....

I agree with funnyguy: that would be a handy feature!
