    Another dickhead in league with Nick Ludgater was Richard Greening who is a computer fixer-tweaker type dogsbody in Huddersfield. In our technical drawing class he would whisper things about me to Nick and they'd sit snickering and looking pleased with themselves like prime moron-cretin-nerds.The funniest thing about Greening though was his gay bouffant hairdo which would surely not have looked out of a place on some old biddy serving behind a newsagent's counter in Coronation Street. Once, in sixth form, Greening wrote a love letter to the girl who would go on to become the girlfriend of Robert Hurcombe. I mean, how quaint is that? LOL. Didn't love letters go out of fashion after the second world war? LOL. I can just imagine it..."Dear pretty girl I think you're really really pretty and I would so like to go on a date with you but only if you promise to wear a long flowery skirt and ribbons in your hair" . LOL LOL LOL. What a total DOOFUSS of a person Richard Greening was/is.

    When I got OS X, I assumed the Applications folder was just to make it easy for the user to find applications. I began keeping my music applications in my Music folder so I could find one if I forgot its name. Today I downloaded Audion and put it in my Music folder. I tried to start it twice and had to use Force Quit. I moved it to the Applications folder and it started okay. What's special about the Applications folder?

AFP client for WinXP

Postby David Portabella » Tue, 05 Feb 2008 03:06:05 GMT


I need to access a AFP server from WinXP.
Is there any AFP client for WinXP?

ps: I am aware that I can configure/install SMB at in my MacOSX
I don't want to do that.
I prefer to install a AFP client in my WinXP machine.
Is there any AFP client for WinXP available?

Many thanks,

In article 

There used to be a Windows program called "PC MacLAN" that would do 
that, but I think it may no longer be sold. Google it and see.

1.Mac AFP clients can not see files created by Unix clients using SF

I posted this on the SFU forum with no luck. Hopefully someone here has seen 

I have Windows 2003 Server with Services for Unix 3.5 and File Server for 
Macintosh. We share a WIP folder to PC users, Macintosh OS9 and OSX users, 
and now AIX and Linux Unix clients. When I create folders/files in WIP using 
Linux/AIX clients, they can not be seen in the directory listing by Macintosh 
clients using AFP to mount the share. They are seen by Windows clients. They 
can also be seen using SMB under OSX. This is not available for OS9.

Creating a file/folder using Windows or Mac clients can be seen by everyone. 
Deleting the Mac share and re-creating it shows the files/folders created by 
Unix clients but this is not feasable in production environments.

Is this a bug? Am I missing some configuration? I've gone over it a hundred 
times. It seems like it would have be seen before but I can't find any info 
on the web.

2.Keeping sleeping AFP clients connected in Tiger

I'm running apple file sharing on my iMac running the latest release
of Tiger, and connecting from my G3 PowerBook which is running OS 9.2.

If the PowerBook sleeps, the iMac automatically disconnects the AFP
connection.  I know that Tiger _Server_ has dialog options to keep
sleeping clients connected.

Does anyone know if there is a plist or netinfo tag you can set in 
the _regular_ version of Tiger (i.e. NOT the server version) that 
allows you to achieve the same thing?

3.AFP client freezes Finder on Intel Mac

I have two Macs networked over Ethernet, a G4 (running 10.4.7) and a 
new core2duo. At first I had no trouble connecting to the G4 from the 
Intel Mac by using Connect to Server. Today, after I get the login menu 
and choose a share on the remote machine, the AFP client will freeze 
(not responding in Activity Monitor). After force quiting, I found that 
I could easily connect from the G4 to the Intel machine. After a couple 
of additional failed attempts to connect to the G4 from the Intel, and 
being forced to forced quit the AFP client window, the Finder froze. I 
force quit the Finder (which shut the frozen window and restored the 
Finder to full functionality). For safe measure I decided to Restart 
the machine, thinking this may have been needed to "cure" the AFP 
problem. However, the machine froze before it could shut down 
completely (it cleared the desktop and hung there). Had to physically 
shut the machine down.

Any idea what the AFP client is doing and how to cure this? The Intel 
is brand new and has all the latest updates.



4.OS X clients can't see all AFP shares from a W2K3 server

Hi all

my W2K3 server shares a lot of folders using AFP protocol but OS X Panther
clients can't browse the whole list. I mean: from the W2K3 mmc snap-in I can
see all of them, but Macintosh clients can connect to a restricted number of
them. Is there a limit regarding the number of AFP shares that a client can
see (and connect)?

Thanks for helping me :)
