mount the drive yourself using the ip address ( assuming they are statically assigned either through dhcp or just static ip addresses ) and then create an alias of the mounted drive by right clicking on it and going to create alias or make alias or w/e it says and then just make that a login item and that should load it at startup (
system prefs --> user accounts --> select the user --> login items --> click + to add it as a login item
Also assuming you have the firewall disabled under security prefs in system prefs and also have sharing enabled on either a folder or the drive ( if thats possible ? )

thanks for your reply. how would I mount the drive myself? I tried connecting to the iMac with the external via ip and I can see it but how do I mount it?

Go --> Connect to server
Assuming your using smb as the protocol ( as there is also AFP, FTP etc )
where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the ip address and share_name is the share name of the folder / drive
helps if both computers both have an account with the same username and password
