Windows 7 Index remote network drive or startup automatically

i have a remote network drive that is stored on an offsite server.. Each time i log into the computer it says it could not connect to the drive. I then have to double click and relogin to the drive....

how can i automatically login to the drive on startup and if possible index it so that it can be put in my libraries?

Did you mean you want it auto login when rebooted?

In this case, since workgroup was not centralize manage users accounts, you need the share computer and your local computer having same account name and password, then it will auto login. Though it may have some other tweak such as remember username and password.
