Rosetta allows more PowerPC code to run.
I suspect AFP may still be PowerPC based.
Not true. AFP is the THE native protocol for OS X, and is in no way tied to Rosetta. It is implemented in pure native Intel code as a core part of OS X networking. I think some folks are confusing this with AppleTalk, which is a very old and now completely unsupported protocol. AFP has nothing to do with AppleTalk.
Only this one machine is affected. Others WITHOUT Rosetta work fine, as does one WITH Rosetta - it simply has no effect one way or another, which is exactly what one would expect.
(I only have Rosetta on one machine to run crappy old Quicken 2007, otherwise I have no PPC applications of any kind, dumped them all.)
So, thanks, but that's barking up the wrong tree, methinks.
Try this. After several days of trying many things, this fixed my connections:
Open the System Prefereces/Sharing panel.
In the first verticle panel Click on "File Sharing"
In the second verticle panel, "Shared Folders" click on your Public Folder.
In the third verticle panel "User's" click on the "+" to add a User.
Add another User's sign on Name and Password.
Do the same for you drop box.
The added User will now be able to connect.
Repeat, adding Users needed.
The Permissions Read & Write
Thanks for all the replies - that's what make this site work (when it does)!
I figured it out. It had to do with my home network and NOT Snow Leopard.
I took 2 of the MacBooks to my office, which uses a Microsoft Active Directory setup. Instantly AFP worked perfectly in all directions, which let me know that my home network was likely at fault.
I checked my router, over which my ISP (Clear WiMAX) gives me limited control. The DNS entries were incorrect, and so I flushed them. I then added DNS entries on each Mac for use of the OpenDNS servers, as I was not happy with the speed of Clear's DNS.
Results: everything works now. The Macs all see each other quickly, AFP works fine and websites snap into view like they should.
You are correct. I use afp between my MBP and iBook--no Rosetta installed. Your problem is a strange one. You could try resetting your [PRAM and NVRAM|http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1379?viewlocale=en_US]. Also you could try reinstalling Sno over Sno as in an upgrade install. The procedure is very safe, but it still is an install. So, be well backed up.
This fix worked for me with a variation. I have SL on a Mac Book Pro. my Desktop is a G5 running 10.5.x. I could always connect 10.6 to 10.5, but not the other way.
When I was in the sharing preferences on the MBP, with "File Sharing" ticked and selected, I noticed that there was a folder called username's Public Folder-1. The username being my administrative account. I deleted this folder by clicking on the "-", then added a folder, clicking on the "+", and navigated to the correct Public Folder. Screen sharing and file sharing instantly worked between all machines, both ways.
Thanks for this tip!
It's just that the AFP dead ends on this one machine.
I have tried restarting File Sharing, fixing permissions, restarting the whole >machine - but the results never vary. Suggestions?
On the errant Mac, if you haven't done so, go System Preferences > Sharing > Check mark File Sharing > Go Options > Check mark the AFP blurb. I feel confident that you have selected these settings. But, ....
I suggest that, for now, you use Go > Connect to Server--afp://IpAddress in trying to connect to the errant Mac. To some extent, connecting using the shared section of a Finder window is broken for some in Sno.
I'm following this thread because I've had sharing issues, too. I have noticed that lately Firefox and Safari tend to be very slow. I have a Linksys router for a home network that links two 2009 macbook pros and one G4 older box. I have some control via a web page of my router, too. Would you please explain in a little more detail the process you used to change the DNS for your computers? I don't know what an OpenDNS server is.
Thanks so much!
