Linkstation Pro afp Mac OS, what is my fault ?
- Hi !
I have a LS PRO with 500GB (FW 1.11 ) on my network (Fritzbox
7170 as router) and I like to use it as an afp-server.
Using it as smb-device I have no problems with either Win XP
nor MAC OS 10.5.1 or 10.4.11
I activated support for the apple-talk protocol,
so afp should be working. At the folders sections I also set Apple to
on. AFP 3.1 (long filenames and file size > 2GB) is told to be
implemented since FW version 1.10.
After pressing apple-K and typing afp://[IP-address] it is possible to
log-on and the available volumes are shown. After choosing a volume
I only get "Das Volume ... konnte nicht aktiviert werden" ( means "The
volume .. could not be activated", sorry german version).
I have tried it with a guest log-on and also with a user and password
created on the LS Pro. The outcome was always the same.
The same happens when i use a mac mini with tiger, smb is working, afp
I already tried the cleartext patch for leopard (for using clear text
login and password). Unfortunately it does not change a thing.
My questions are:
Do I have to do additional settings on the LS Pro ?
Or may I not activate smb and afp at the same time ?
Or are there additional settings nedded under system configuration
/network on Mac OS ?
Thanks in advance for any feedback, i really dont have any more ideas
