SMB doesn't preserve the resource fork. If one doesn't care about that, much easier and cheaper to just use FTP.

Hey guys, I have some partial good news. I updated to 10.6.2 last night. One of the fixes listed was "compatibility with third-party AFP servers". I fired up my 6500 with OS 9.2.2 and was able to connect to it from Snow Leopard with full read/write access! I can confirm this work with 7.6.1 and ShareWay IP as well. On the downside, neither OS 9.2.2 or 7.6.1 were able to connect to Snow Leopard as a client. At least it's something.

for reference, the 10.6.2 update doesn't affect classic appleshare at all- the patch they're referring to had to do with the fact that afptcp volumes have a id attached to them - as it was, apple for some reason restricted the supported id numbers with the release of 10.6.0 to a fixed set that only supported apple official servers. Novell, for example, made a patch to work around this in their AFPTCP.NLM for traditional netware, but there's no support for classic file serving at all in 10.6.x as it stands, and I don't expect for any to be added.

As suggested, I'd look to the netatalk project for a possible solution, or jsut stick to connecting TO your sys7 mac from within 10.6.0

This affects ALL versions of classic MacOS, btw, not just 7.x!

Define "Classic Appleshare". I think you're getting confused with AppleTalk.

10.6 broke connecting to Classic Mac AFP servers using TCP/IP, and from Classic Macs with TCP/IP connecting to a 10.6 machine.

10.6.2 restores the ability to connect to Classic Mac AFP servers using TCP/IP, just not the other way around. It's a fact, and I've proven it right here in my computer room.

Thanks for playing.

Never mind. I re-read your post. We're not in disagreement. My bad.
