My SMB shares work great on OSX (10.12.6) no issues there.
I cannot, however, get AFP to announce or connect correctly or consistently.
There is no firewall enabled on the client.
Trying to connect manually using afp://email@example.com/sharename or some version there of will bring up the user connect message, but will report the share cannot be found. I was able to locate the share once, and have it appear in in the time machine options, but attempting to initiate a backup resulted in an error reporting there is a problem.
Suggestions? Are there known issues with AFP here?
SMB works well, but I need to be able to do time machine backups.
Not that I’m aware of (apart from s potential old one referenced below), have you tried enabling the Time Machine element of the APF export?
I don’t have a running AFP share that I can test currently but I’ll try and dig out an old one I used for testing before, but last time I did it was setup as per the following doc Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) section which focuses on setting up for Time machine use as that’s pretty much all AFP is used for it seems these days anyway.
Although we did / may still have, the following issue that seems to have affected pretty much all NAS’s:
It was closed as there was little we could action for it.
