Connecting OSX 10.7 and above to a Novell Share

Because Apple changed the AFP version from v1 to v2, there are no connections possible through AFP from Mac to OES2 Linux nor NetWare... Solution: 1.Open up a Terminal on your Mac and make /Library/Preferences writable:

sudo chmod o+w /Library/Preferences

2.Switch back your Lion to AFP v1:

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/ afphostprefs_version -int 15

3.Reboot your Mac !! (this is necessary just one time)

4.Try to connect to your Server again. It may still fail.

5.Open up a Terminal again and type:

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/ afpdisableduams -array "Cleartxt Passwrd" "MS2.0"

6.Now the AFP connections should work...

7.Change back rights to /Library/Preferences/ with:

sudo chmod o-w /Library/Preferences
