mounted in the fstab file 

//    /mnt/nas   cifs   0 0   

if it makes a connection each time the system requires to read from/to the resource then it is exactly what I want from it.

Thanks I will keep playing with it.

Mounted how? NFS is stateless. ie there is no connection to loose. Sort 
of.  Assuming you still have the same IP address.

I don't think any network filesystem would ever require maintaining a 
TCP connection, so you shouldn't have a problem.
