I've gotten my Ubuntu eeePC connecting to my XP shares automatically on my home WiFi network. I've also gotten my Ubuntu eeePC connecting to my XP box over a PPTP VPN.

Now, I'd like to automatically re-connect to the same XP shares I can access locally but using the VPN instead (when away from home).

I suspect there should be some way to force use of the fstab info I've already entered, which references each XP share by the XP's (internal) IP address and the XP share names. Since that same IP address is accessible over the VPN, this should be simple. No?

Any suggestions for this? Thanks.
