I have used the
afp protocol to share between Macs on my local network.
I normally connect using a command like the following:-
This then prompts for a shared directory to connect to.
I have experienced some difficulties since upgrading to High Sierra.
My wife has a new Macbook Pro, which she setup by copying from a TimeMachine backup from her old Mac (running Sierra) then upgrading to High Sierra.
I can access the old Mac with no issues.
I have checked and double checked. Sharing (using
afp) has been enabled, and there are a number of shared Directories.
Any attempt to connect fails because there are no shared directories.
I tried using my daughter's laptop MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2012) also running High Sierra 10.13.2 This exhibits similar difficulties, although bizarrely it offers to share 2 mounted external Volumes. I can access her Mac using Screen Sharing.
Can anyone suggest what is wrong, or any other steps I might follow.
I have just tried connecting from my daughter's MacBook to mine (also running 10.13.2) and this seems to proceed flawlessly.
