10.3: Easy access to AppleTalk shares in Panther
Authored by: fxg97873 on Dec 15, '03 05:36:07PM

Are you talking about being able to SEE the AFP shares in the Browse window?
Go to /Applications/Utilities and activate the Directory Access app.
Authenticate yourself and make sure that "Appletalk" is checked.
By default, at least on a clean install, Appletalk Services are off.

p.s. Make sure that Appletalk is also active in the Network Preference Pane for your interface.

10.3: Easy access to AppleTalk shares in Panther
Authored by: blgrace on Dec 15, '03 08:22:57PM

I must admit, I'm totally confused on this issue between TCP/IP and AppleTalk in 10.3.1.

Under OS 9 I could easily tell if a server was mounted by TCP/IP by the icon on the desktop - and by how much faster it was, but under Panther I have no idea. If I choose K method and just type in an IP address such as "192.168.0.1", I would assume I'm connecting over TCP/IP ? but if I type afp://192.168.0.1 it's AppleTalk ?
Sorry about this - just confuses the lump that sits on my brain stem (barely breathing as I type)

10.3: Easy access to AppleTalk shares in Panther
Authored by: Richard_G on Dec 16, '03 09:12:32AM

Thanks for that tip it worked well. We have a very mixed network with OS 9, OSX Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows NT machines. I could not contect to 3 machines, one was a MacOS9 machine. Switching on Appletalk via the Directory Access app sorted it instantly. Now I just have 2 old NT machines that don't connect. NT server is fine it works instantle. The other 2 appear in the sidebar but when I try to connect a warning box says "Could not connect because the original could not be found" and the server icon disappears from the list. When I click back on the Network icon the icon for the NT machine has appeared again so the Mac can see it. Its just that the connection will not work.

Any thoughts?
