Thanks for your response.  I have libfam installed and working.  If I
add the ItemDir tag entry as mentioned above, it works as expected with
FAM auto-updating the list of servers.  Without that entry, I never see
anything but the "New Server" entry.

I'm curious, do you see the name of the folder as network:/// or Network
Servers on Linux?  Thanks.
