AFP on OMV 6

  • Sorry if that's already been covered but is there any way to install AFP apple filing protocol on OMV6 or is it definitely dead?

    Thanks in advance!


  • I use it always:

    HP t630 Thin Cliënt (AMD Embedded G-Series GX-420GI | QuadCore | 8GB)
    6.4.0-3 (Shaitan) | 64 bit | Linux 6.2.11-2-pve | omvextrasorg 6.1.1

  • Any particular reason for using AFP? Even Apple recommends SMB...

    For me it is way faster than SMB in combination with my setups (helios64 and HC1), especially when it comes to transfer a lot of small files.
    There are several threads here on how to adjust the SMB settings accordingly but I always got back to AFP for getting more speed. But, of course, it might be completely different on your setup so I think everyone has to do a little bit of trial and error in order find the right protocol.

  • OK, I see. It's good to know that there are still use cases for AFP. I have had both AFP and SMB running side by side for some time now, but it caused some confusion because the shares had identical names (because they are sharing identical directories on the server) so I figured I should either rename them or at least only mount AFP on my macs. Then I read about SMB being faster etc, so I thought perhaps I should get rid of it alltogether. Hence my question.

    I haven't gotten Spotlight to reliably index those SMB shares, which might actually have been the reason why I added AFP at some point. But since indexing still seems to fail, I guess it didnt help...
