I found this script from http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20050215082247458, but I'll reproduce it below. Open up Script Editor and paste in: set sfiles to "afp://user:pass@host/volume" tell application "Finder" mount volume sfiles end tell Replace sfiles with the appropriate details of your AFP volume. Add ...

TL;DR Use AppleScript, but do not specify the user name or password. Background In my case, none of the suggestions that I found online worked perfectly. I had several AFP volumes that I wanted to mount automatically. Following the advice given here and elsewhere, the obvious solution seemed to be an AppleScript file with something along these lines: ...

Radio interference? How many other wifi spots are nearby? How many are using the same channel as you? Does this only happen with AFP or does it happen with other protocols as well (e.g., HTTP, CIFS, etc)? Are you using A/B/G/N? What's the memory usage look like on both systems? Is one (or both) maxed out? The traffic seems very bursty. This could indicate ...

You should try the transfer in FTP only because FTP sets it's own "MTU". If this sends files very quickly, you are looking at a TCP fragmentation issue, i.e., you are sending TCP packets too large for the router to handle on it's own. I imagine you can tweak the Mac network settings to force fragmentation to 1500 or less per packet.

I have seen this happen when there is already a volume with the given name and the OS needs to create a new name to mount the volume as you can't have a duplicate name -- thus the suffix. The first thing to do is, make sure that you don't have any other volumes with the same name. If you do, perhaps you can rename one or only use one at a time. I've also ...

Yes. Set up sharing on REM to share the root directory of the second drive. You can right click and do it from the Finder or go in and manage all shares from the sharing system preference.

Synology has a few solutions. Their products are reliable and affordable. There are multiple applications you can install in a few clicks but for S3 backups you will have to go the manual way.

You can put aliases to the remote volumes in your Login Items folder. A nice explanation of this feature is available from Apple on the web and the built-in help: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2602

1. Edit the file /Applications/Tunnelblick.app/Contents/Resources/client.up.osx.sh and add these commands at the end of the file, just before exit 0 : su USERNAME -c ' mkdir /Volumes/TimeCapsule mount_afp afp://afp_username@server/volumename /Volumes/TimeCapsule ' open /Volumes/TimeCapsule Replace USERNAME with your username on the system. 2. Then add ...

Open Terminal. Execute this command: defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores true Either restart the computer or log out and back in to the user account. Reference: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1629

It turns out that, as I suspected, a paranoid security configuration was preventing AFP from working. In particular, the machine had been "hardened" per Apple's security configuration guide in which chapter 9 describes how to disable AFP by unloading the com.apple.afpfs_afpLoad dæmon (I had thought it was only required to serve files, not also to connect to ...

User access to sharepoints will depend on permissions that are set on that sharepoint. You can use the 'ls' command to get that information using Terminal...Newer Mac products (10.4+) will use ACLs to control access to those folders. You can obtain infomation on both the POSIX as well as ACLs applied to folders by using this command: ls -ale /Path/To/Folder ...

A couple of things you need to be aware of. First - the AFP URL needs to contain the name of the share - not it's location on the server. Second, the mount point must be an empty directory that you have write permission to. So your commands might be :- sudo mkdir /Volumes/mount sudo mount -t afp afp://user:pass@ipaddress/SharedDrive /Volumes/mount

I have a shell script that I run via a launchd plist every few minutes to automount an NAS drive. I use it from home to mount my NAS as it contains our shared iTunes Media folder. You can look at the script Code on Pastebin. I you have questions about the code I'll be happy to discuss. It has a lots of error checking etc. Using a shell script and a launchd ...

It seems that obsolete iDisk settings in OSX 10.8 may prevent you to connect to a file server. You need to run those commands in Terminal defaults delete -g iToolsMember defaults delete -g iToolsMemberDomain to get rid of those settings.

I've got the same problem. I used a .dmg mounted on my imac to store time machine backups for my macbook pro over the network. Since upgrading to mountain lion I'm unable to access the network share from other macs. This seems to be the case for all .dmg files that I've tried to share over afp.

If you are running Windows file shares on Windows Server 2003 R2 and above, you can create file screens that prevent any user from creating any set of pre-specificied files. I have effectively used this approach to eliminate all mac created files on our file shares. Please see the MS Technet document, Screening Files, for more information.

It turned out that the issue was indeed different UIDs though the usernames were the same. From the Apple Support Communities link: borbye: The first user that is established on an OSX disc is given UID number 501. Normally next user is given UID 502. In my case I could not import my existing user during first run with my new MB Air. Had to ...

I, too, find this a pain with my QNAP box. FYI the firmware has now been updated to 3.6.0 released just a few days ago, and there is some noticeable improvement with the update. However, you may consider using the iSCSI feature among the QNAP settings to make the file shares appear as a hard drive showing up on your desktop for better speed. I've noticed ...

I have updated the server to 10.6 and mac to 10.6, the problem never came back !

My headhurts from fixing this. I found this discussion thread which allowed me to enable Time Machine Sharing for more than one volume. It's not as tricky as it sounds, but you do need to go step by step. The only things I had to do that weren't in this discussion thread were: I had to log in as root. Root was disabled in my server, so I had to enable ...

Well, I ask for the information (CMD-I) of the secondary drive, and set the "shared" box. Then afp is able to mount the secondary disk. Some difficulty may arise from "symbolic links" between drive (the links you create with unix command ln -s ), and I had to use "hard link" ("create alias" from Finder menu, and probably Unix command "ln ", without option ...

Well... You will need to run Open Directory, and set up network home folders within there. Then, when yous OD clients log into yous Macs, they will be given access to their home folder from the server. For mobile users, you will want to set up a Mobile Home Folder, perhaps with HomeSync. Check out these documents from Apple: ...

There are different levels of ease with which you can approach this, perhaps taking training or hiring a consultant would be your best bet to help you make the best decision on how to proceed. That being said, here's two ways to begin to accomplish what you're asking: Netbooting the computers from a centrally served image allows you to maintain the entire ...

Not sure that you can. I would think for security reasons a user has to be logged in, so that a set of credentials can be used. There's probably some scripts that are run pre-login though, so I suppose if you specify your credentials in there it would be fine.

Indeed you can script it all from terminal. You will want to learn a little about launchd - that will specify when the mount will happen. At $5 the Lingon app from the App Store is great if you don't want to learn launchd configuration files. Next, you'll need a command to make the AFP mount. Last, you might learn security command to store or retrieve a ...

I would look into AutoFS. You can have AFP mounted on demand (see page 14 of the linked PDF).

Look at http://netatalk-ddwrt.blogspot.com/ Try the builds mentioned and install them on your router with the following commands: ipkg install libdb_4.7.25-3_mipsel.ipk ipkg install netatalk_2.2.0-2_mipsel.ipk make sure that you use ipkg install libdb_4.7.25-3_mipsel.ipk -force-downgrade in case your libdb version is newer than 4.7.24.

Have you set it up like the Lion Server Administration article quoted below? Time Machine service offers a backup destination on your server to Time Machine users. Use the Time Machine pane of the Server app to make server disk space available for backing up users’ computers, or to change the disk used for storing user backups. Time Machine service is ...
