Ok, Apple is back at it with making standards that everyone must catch up to in order to do things we like doing. Like, connecting to a NAS. After a bit of frustration at my inability to connect to my office NAS I went looking for a solution and found one that works. Originally found on the Apple developer forums but summorized very nicely over on AlexanderWild. When trying to connect to office NAS I was presented with this:
The problem: It appears Apple disables support for the “DHCAST128″ in OS X 10.7 LION , which is a common NAS setup.
To turn on “DHCAST128″ support please do the following:
1) Launch /Applications/Utilities/Terminal and do:
sudo chmod o+w /Library/Preferences
2) Then Do:
defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_host_prefs_version -int 1
3) Restart your computer.
4) From Finder, select an AFP server, or use “Connect To…”. This will cause the AFP Client to create the full preferences file
5) Launch Terminal again and do:
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_disabled_uams -array “Cleartxt Passwrd” “MS2.0″ “2-Way Randnum exchange”
6) Then Do:
sudo chmod o-w /Library/Preferences
7) Restart your computer again.
Note: To add a “DHCAST128″ to the disable list, use
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_disabled_uams -array-add “DHCAST128″
