I am currently trying to connect my NAS on OSX 10.9.5 using the command line. This will work fine if I first connect my NAS using Finder: I select it in the "Shared" section of Finder's sidebar, click "Connect" and it will connect using the credentials from the keychain and list all available shares.

Then I can use mount_afp on the command line to mount my shares. However, without performing this step in Finder, the following will occur:

$ mount_afp afp://MyNAS._afpovertcp._tcp.local/my_share /path/to/mount_point
mount_afp: AFPMountURL returned error -5002, errno is -5002

How can I perform the "connect" operation from Finder on the command line?

  • Can you provide some screenshots or images to illustrate your steps? I might be able to help but it would be a lot easier if I could actually see what we're talking about. – tjt263 Sep 22 '15 at 21:26
  • Sure, the corresponding Finder view can be see here, original source: superuser.com/questions/283863/… – stefan-girlich Sep 22 '15 at 22:00
