Currently Being ModeratedSep 8, 2009 2:51 PM (in response to Scott Gregor)I had the same problem, solved (at work) by changing afp://[server address] to smb://[server address]. I gather from some threads elsewhere that Novell doesn't support afp under Snow Leopard, though it appears that upgrades are coming that will fix this.
For me, the solution works only at the office, not at home. Maybe it's the firewall in the router that I use at home; I've got to play around with that.

and then try again.

I thought it was the simple password issue, but it happens when trying to mount the server shares after authenticating.Intel iMac, Mac OS X (10.6), NetWare 6.5
Currently Being ModeratedOct 28, 2009 9:59 PM (in response to Scott Gregor)I just bought a new computer and am setting it up at work, which runs a Novelle server. I have the same problem, I could connect with my old computer running 10.4, but now I am getting the "Connection Failed" message, after I type in my id and password. How to I change from running afp to smb?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.1), 2.66 GHz, 4 GB, running Parallels
