There was a problem connecting to server “AFP@strumpet”.

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

During Installation of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, I find one very serious problem. I am unable to connect to my Gentoo Netatalk AFP server and when I try to get the connection, I find the following error. Is this a very serious issue?  

Can any one tell me its proper solution and if possible provide snapshots.

The version of the server you are trying to connect to is not supported. Please contact your system administrator to resolve the problem.

It may be that the data you are transporting over that session was not secured. I urge you to talk to your providers to get your server updated. The error message you receive could just be directed to warn you, but you can still be retrieving your mails. I am not sure if you have tried forging ahead with the operation after the error has shown up. Ensure there are also no firewalls that could be interfering with your Gentoo Netatalk AFP Server.

Hello Afaasalim,

The method I am going to tell you is a procedure to connect through a legacy server. For this you have to login as a registered user. Now open terminal and give the following commands

sudo chmod o+w /Library/Preferences

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/ afp_host_prefs_version -int 1

After this restart the computer. Now from finder select an AFP server. Lunch the terminal again and write:

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/ afp_disabled_uams -array "Cleartxt Passwrd" "MS2.0" "2-Way Randnum exchange"

sudo chmod o-w /Library/Preferences

Again restart the computer.

Thank you,
