I tried to use
mount_afp afp://user:firstname.lastname@example.org/home ~/Documents to mount the
~/Documents folder to the shared folder, but it shows the error like below:
mount_afp: AFPMountURL returned error 62, errno is 62
What am I doing wrong?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
I don't think Mac OS X allows you to connect to your own machine for AFP mounts. For example, if you go to the Finder, select Go > Connect to Server, and type "afp://localhost", it puts up a dialog saying:
Not exactly a solution to your problem, but I suggest you to create alias instead.
It's doing exactly what you wanted to do.
But if you still want to afp to local machine, read here.
It involves creating a SSH tunnel to trick OS X of connecting to another machine while it's just localhost.
1548 is the fake port, and mypowerbook.local is your machine's host name. You do need root for this.
Then connect to the afp server with "localhost:1548", and it should work.
But, it's an outdated post, I'm not sure if it will work. Anyway, good luck!
