We're using a CentOS box to plug USB Flash drive & external hard drive into it. The CentOS box is then used to FTP the content of these external drives to a Winblows box, all that filtered by a firewall between the 2 boxes. Only FTP is allowed. Doing some tests on the CentOS box, i saw that if i log into the console, then the local session and the remote VNC sessions will see the drives automounted. If i log out of the console, then the VNC session won't see anything. It's like the automount works only if somebody is logged at the console. Hope i was clearer. Thanks! Guy Boisvert, ing.
