I need to automount ftp, but not only at boot but always with some timeout. Btw this ftp server is mediaplayer. Please help. Ubuntu version 14.04.
Like usb but ftp.
You can try to use Autofs. Here is a good documentation/tutorial about it : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Autofs
And here you'll find how to use it with FTP : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Autofs#FTP_and_SSH_.28with_FUSE.29
the Timeout setting at the master file level is the timeout before automatic disconnection after a period of inactivity.
Warning : FTP is very light to be used like a regular File System. You can have some bad performance due to the FTP protocol design. If you can do it, prefer ssh/scp with certificate authentication.
