afp/smb transfers caps at 2 megabytes/sec, wireless N

I wanted to transfer files between two mac computers. The network is wireless-N and both computers have wireless-N modules in them. The problem is that when I transfer files between them, via file sharing (afp) the network speed caps at 2 megabytes/sec. Just downloading files from the internet I can get faster speeds, so this isn’t a constriction of my wifi bandwidth, it appears to be a constriction of the protocol being used. My wifi-n […]

Wide Area Bonjour using DNS SRV Records

Running Apple’s Lion Server (10.7.3). I am trying to get VPN clients (clients on another subnet) to see the server’s Apple File share. I know that Bonjour doesn’t route over a VPN or subnet, so I am adding static DNS entries. AFP shares work, as I can connect directly to the share using afp://servername.example.com. But, Finder and CLI tools are unable to discover the share. From my research it sounds like I can use DNS […]

OS X AFP shares and access

I am running 10.5.6 Client as a mini server and am having problems with AFP shares. All clients are OS X 10.5.7 I have created three users for ‘File Sharing’ only on the ‘server’. I have created groups and placed these users into specific groups. I have created ACL’s to give each group access to certain shares. Two of those users can read and write to any share, one user cannot write to the shares, […]

AFP file permission issues with Mac OS X

I have two clients (one windows XP and one Mac OS X) connected to a UNIX server (centOS). The windows client connects through the Samba file protocol, and the Mac through AFP. For some reason the Mac OS X machine ignores the permissions set even when they are changed to 444; it just overrides the priveleges and is able to write to the file (along with changing the permissions to 777). I have been logging […]

Prevent AFP share access over VPN connection?

I need to setup a restricted external access to file shares on the network. Thing is, there are some sensible files that require to be hidden when someone connects from the (eventual) VPN. Setup: Mac OS X server 10.5, up-to-date Open Directory + Samba + Kerberos Various windows and mac os clients, no older than XP or 10.5 as far as I’ve been told. My idea, from the start, was to setup the VPN so […]

Make avahi advertise multiple machine

Is it possible that a single machine running avahi advertises other machines sharing files over afp ? I have different machines running Gentoo but I don’t want to run avahi on each server. I’ve found the solution by trying to tune .config files ! /etc/avahi/services/ contains *.services like afpd.services Copy the afpd.servicies to match each machine you want to advertise : server1.service, server2.service, … Add the <host-name></host-name> tag in each .service *.service : <?xml version=”1.0″ […]

Which daemon realize afp fileshare in archlinux?

How can I implement filesharing via appleĀ“s afp protocol on an arch-linux box? My system should serve files to multiple clients with different operating systems. (Windows {XP,7},OS X) For the Windows part I installed Samba. Here are directions for setting up a Linux AFP Server But why not use Samba for both? Linux, Windows, and Mac all support CIFS (aka SMB, what Samba serves). Check more discussion of this question. Bookmark on Delicious Digg this […]

AFP painfully slow

Copying a file using AFP took 40 minutes but using scp it only took 7 mins. Why is AFP so slow? My setup: D-Link DIR-300 wifi router iMac with Snow-Leopard serves AFP Macbook with Leopard is the client Just a hunch but it’s quick to test. Try doing this on both Macs: sysctl net.inet.tcp.delayed_ack …note what it reports. It’ll be an integer, probably the value 2 or 3…then set it to zero: sudo sysctl -w […]

Netatalk sharing filename limitation

I want to share file from my linux box to OSX clients. I don’t want to use SMB ! I’m using netatalk 2.1.2 but apparently there is a filname length limitation : I’ve tried “123456789012345678901234567.avi” (31 characters long), and it works but when the filename is >31 char long. Some programs like Quicktime can’t open the file. I’ve started the share with : … -unixcodepage utf8 -maccodepage utf8 Is there any way to make netatalk/afpd […]
