I have a share on a netatalk server that exporting "Don's home" - I want to add to fstab so that it's handled by autofs as an indirect mount.

I've tried using %60 and %20, quoting, escaping with backslash, \40, \040, etc. Anyone know the syntax?

When there are no special characters this works fine:

server:/share dummy url net,automounted,url==afp://user:pass@server/share 0 0
