After upgrading to 10.4.6 I am having trouble connection to our Windows 2003 server via AFP. Has anyone had any similar issues/solutions. This only affecting one of the 3 servers that I connect to.

    Welcome to Apple Discussions!

    Check that the ports of your firewall are properly set. You may want to check the Networking board to see if there are solutions posted:

    I have the same problem. I can't find any solutions on the networking board. The problem is only with the one computer I have updated to 10.4.6. All others are fine. I can also connect to other shared drives on XP PCs, but not the one on the 2003 Server that is AFP.

    Anyone help???

    PROBLEM SOLVED!

    I have discovered that with 10.4.6, user names and passwords are now case sensitive, whereas they were not in 10.4.5 and earlier. I went to the Windows Server and looked at how the username and password was set up for access, and saw that they were set up with both having initial caps and the rest lower case. In 10.4.5 and earlier, we were logging in over the network with all lower case on both without a problem. With 10.4.6, we have to type them both with initial caps. I banged my head against the wall and spent several days on these forums looking for this answer with no results. Today our part time PC IT guy was in and I asked him if he had any suggestions, and within 3 minutes he had solved my problem.

    Thanks, Apple!

    Thank you for letting us know. Strange how it wasn't before. I never noticed since I always assumed it was case sensitive.
