iMacs run 10.6.8 can't mount drive on G5 10.4.11

Unread postby mnorton » Mon Jan 09, 2012 12:40 pm

I have a weird dilemma, where my PowerMac G5 can remotely mount drives on my 2 imacs running 10.6.8.
But the imacs can't mount the G5 running 10.4.11. The two imacs can see the G5 from the finder and try to connect to the server. Only it fails every time.

Any ideas?

Can anything mount the drives from the G5?

Is this SMB, NFS or AFS?

This is using afp:// the AFS.

Nothing can connect to the G5. It broadcasts on the network it is available.

I would look at what options you have for sharing from the G5.
