Unsupported - Disabling AppleTalk

By: Richard Glaser - Revised: 2006-06-07 devin

In ASIP 6.1, there is an UNSUPPORTED option that you can turn on that will disable AFP over AppleTalk access. NBP (in the Chooser) will still show the server's name and will still do the "magic" switch to TCP/IP, but anyone trying to log in over AppleTalk will get an error of "The attempted connection to the server has failed. Try again later." This error dialog appears after the enter password dialog has appeared. Not the most informative dialog, but hey, that is why it is unsupported!
  1. Shut down the server
  2. Open the AppleShare IP Web & File extension using a resource editor like ResEdit
  3. Open the 'pref' resource
  4. Edit resource #1699 and set it to be 1
  5. Save the resource and restart your server.
