Default Leopard tip with SnapOS

FYI a recent FAQ on the Adaptec site...

Unable To Access Share From MAC OS X Workstation Running "Leopard" (version 10.5)


After upgrading the OS X workstation to 10.5, users are not able to access their shares on the Snap Server running SnapOS via AFP.

This information applies to the following Operating System(s):

- Mac OS X 10.5

This issue is the result of the modified security settings in "Leopard" and therefore will require the user to modify certain settings on the MAC workstation to resolve the issue.

For more information regarding these modified security settings, please visit the Apple support forums here, for a possible solution.

Please be aware that the SnapOS is End of Life and therefore this solution has not been internally tested and is being provided without any guarentee.


To set it up you need to modify the AppleShare preferences file. This file is called
com.apple.AppleShareClient.plist, and is located in ~/Library/Preferences (that is,
the Library folder off your home folder).

With no AFP connection active, double click on the .plist file to open it. Then change
the values of the items called "afp_cleartext_allow" and "afp_cleartext_warn" to Yes, from their default values of No. Then save the preferences file.
