My question is essentially the same as this one, but for OS X 10.6 instead of Windows 7.

I would like to run a program whenever I connect to my home wireless network (not the one at work or university). I'm sure there's a program that does this, but unfortunately my google-fu isn't strong today.


MarcoPolo is what you're after, it can run scripts via Platypus upon changing a network so you can make a shell script to launch your program.

    @John: looks like it will do the trick nicely, thank you sir! (and how cool is it that my 1st SU question is answered by the Jon Skeet of SU?!) – Jon Apr 20 '10 at 13:00
