CircleDev had trouble on 18 Dec 2008
Will not mount my afp shares :(

I run a g4 with tiger server 10.4.11 with all my music an movies on it.
It has 3 different shares running afp only across a wired network.
All the shares will mount through the finder and the server shows in the sidebar too.

BM says it cannot connect to the server even though finder can?
I have tried lots of variations on the sharepoint and server but still no dice :(

Any ideas?

BTW do you have an email address so I could send logs or whatever you need to fix this.

Thanks

Ok Fixed it.

it seems that BM does not like having empty name and password fields.
As I have my server sharing through the guest account to my household this is a problem.
BM works fine and mounts ok when username and password is entered.

Can you please add a checkbox on the edit share panel to use guest login for the particular share.

Thanks for the great work.

Apologies if I was ranting before.

Ok but when I access the server from the finder it says logged in as guest and I have no dialog asking for username and password.
There is nothing in my keychain for the server.
When I mount the share at login with the finder there is no username/password dialog.
Also when presented with a username/password dialog I can choose guest which then mounts the share.
Why cant BM do this if the finder can?

Thanks
