OS X LION connection error with AFP and workaround

This time i wrote this post in english because i think this workaround will be interesting for a lot of people.

Ok the issue is that i tried to access my QNAP Turbo NAS TS-410 over AFP with OS X LION Developer Preview 2 and got a error message like this one above. I couldn’t login with a registered user on my QNAP NAS box. The guest account worked fine but no chance with a registered one.

So i found a solution and explanation at the Apple Developer Forum. Apple disables support for the „DHCAST128“ in OS X 10.7 LION , which is commonly used by NAS boxes. Apple thinks is it insufficiently secure. So all the Vendors must work with Apple for Lion compatibility.

To turn on „DHCAST128“ support please do the following:

1)  Launch /Applications/Utilities/Terminal and do:
sudo chmod o+w /Library/Preferences
defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_host_prefs_version -int 1
Now restart your computer.
2)  From Finder, select an AFP server, or use „Connect To…“.  This will cause the AFP Client to create the full preferences file
3)  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“
sudo chmod o-w /Library/Preferences
Now restart your computer.

Note:  To add a „DHCAST128“ to the disable list, use
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_disabled_uams -array-add „DHCAST128“

 

I tried it at my OS X LION installation an it worked like a charm. I hope that all the Vendors like QNAP, Synology etc. will patch that in future firmware releases.

    Unfortunately this will not help with doing time machine backups to AFP drives on Synology DSM — they are missing necessary AFP extensions 🙁

    Unfortunately it doesnt work for time machine. The same NAS (WD Sharespace 4TB) in my case, now lets me use afp (after this workaround) with user shares, but not with the WD_Backup share that Time Machine Uses. Very odd. It seems the NAS must support some new version of afp. Anyone any ideas?

    Thanks for this post. So far, it has been head & shoulders more informative than AppleCare was. The concern I have though, is that I am still able to connect to my Iomega NAS drive (2TB Home Media Network Drive) to access my media (music, movies, TV shows, etc.) using Lion. I am just not able to connect to it using Time Machine as I was able to before I upgraded from Snow Leopard. My question to you is, if I follow your instructions, should I be able to connect to the Iomega drive to back up using Time Machine without losing the ability to connect to the rest of my media? Thanks!

    Great link Alexander, thanks guys.

    However, sorry if this is a stupid question but will this method work for SMB? I can’t see to understand; the page’s title mentions SMB but the solution seems as if it’s only for AFP?

    This is quite a pain; my Mac is happy making Time Machine backups to Windows, no problem; I don’t wish to lose this at the moment. Sigh!

    Well, I tried it 4 times right now. It still don’t work. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I also tried to „mv /L/P/com.apple.AppleShareClient.plist“ to desktop and „redo“ the whole procedure. Still no success.
    The afp-Server is a self-build FreeNAS 8.0.1 BETA4. Guest-account enabled – works. But the registered user doesn’t. Any Idea? Maybe sth. obvius I’m doing wrong?

  45. Bombaaa
    Bombaaa says:

    I figured out one thing. In the terminal I’m at /Library/Preferences/ .
    If I do:
    „defaults read ./com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_disabled_uams“
    I get:
    „The domain/default pair of (./com.apple.AppleShareClient, afp_disabled_uams) does not exist“
    If I do the same command as su (sudo) I get:
    „(
        „Cleartxt PasswrdMS2.02-Way Randnum exchange“
    )“

    So this might be a permission problem. May someone who got this working post its permission for the c.a.ASC.plist and .plist.lockfile?
    That would be very kind!

    Hi Can anybody please explain exacty the command lines to GET BACK to the original setting? I am not knowledgable in commands in  Terminal, and I see four command lines to turn on DHCAST128 but only one command line to switch it back. Will any of the other command lines also be needed? Please explain, because I think that once the NAS suppliers has upgraded we need to go back to Apples in tended setup.

  64. jr
    jr says:

    I followed the instructions precisely (and tried and tried…).

    It did alter the com.apple.AppleShareClient Original.plist file by adding the following:

    afp_disabled_uams array 6 ordered objects
    0   string    „Cleartxt
    1   string   Passwrd“
    2   string   “MS2.0?
    3   string   “2-Way
    4   string   Randnum
    5   string   exchange”

    looks like the command works the way it was intended but still cannot connect to an old afp server.

    any other ideas?

  65. PHP
    PHP says:

    Hi JR, I had some strange behavior first. I think it was related to that my Mac connected to the NAS via smb (due to my ignorance).  Some of my shortcuts (alias) was defined to use smb (my LG NAS is set up for both smb and afp due to other clients in my network). So my Mac got connected via smb and after that it was not possible to connect via afp. The remedy was that I shut down the NAS and then deleted all old shortcuts on the Mac that pointed to the NAS, then booted up the NAS and restarted the Mac. Then I could connect via afp.

  66. jr
    jr says:

    PHP, Thanx for the very fast response. i erased all shortcuts/aliases, restarted the server restarted the desktop. i still cannot get to the old snapserver on the lan. on snow leopard, it was easy, just change two lines in the com.apple.appleshareclient.plist file.

    any other suggestions out there???

    Worked for me on Buffalo LinkStation Live v2. It didn’t the first time I tried, but probably because I didn’t do the steps EXACTLY as specified. Also, it’s important to replace the ‚curly quote marks‘ in the original with straight ones (which I think this blog substitutes automatically).

  70. jr
    jr says:

    Matt, indeed you are right about the quotes – type in the quotes, do not cut and paste. The .plist file entries are different as a result of entering the terminal commands properly and look correct. See picture. The afp_disabled_uams entries appear to be entered correctly where before they were broken into different lines at the spaces and included quote marks. I experimented with changing the afp_allow_system_uams and afp_allow_user_uams but it still did not connect to the old snap server. I am getting desperate.

    Thank you for all your suggestions, please keep them coming!

    into Terminal, re-started. Connect to the afp server. I didn’t past this as I have no idea what bit I’m supposed to paste.
    „sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_disabled_uams -array “Cleartxt Passwrd” “MS2.0″ “2-Way Randnum exchange”
    sudo chmod o-w /Library/Preferences“I’ve given up on Lion and downgraded, actually, going all the wake back to Leopard before these multiple upgrades. I wiped the Lion partition and installed Leopard from scratch and then re-installed a Leopard back-up, but I now seem to be completely unable to access Mybook world at all. It’s definitely on and working and it has the latest firmware, but the ethernet connection just sits there „connecting“ but doing nothing.

    This Lion upgrade has been a complete nightmare. Anything I need to do to reverse the terminal commands above?

    Does anyone have any comments or tips on my problem with Mybook world, below? I’ve gone back to Leopard. Although I see mybook world in my finder, it won’t connect from Finder Sidebar. If I use the ‚connect to‘, then AFP won’t connect but SMB will and then when it does, I see the ‚Configuration‘ folder, which I’ve never seen before and lots of random folders like this „_VJDGT~V“. Also, when I launch iphoto (which on Mybook world), the ‚Events‘ appear but none of the content or previews. How do I undo the commands above, as that seems to be the only change that’s happened and despite erasing Lion and re-installing Leopard, I can’t connect to MBW.

    And then after a while it’s dissapeared …
    If the DLINK is there, I can access the DNS-323 as usual.

    If anyone can tell me why this connection seems to toggle … 

    Anyway, my solution to have a proper network connection to the DNS-323 is this:

    in Finder go to „connect to server“ and fill out this:
    smb:// and it works!
    Default the protocol is afp://

    Replace the afp with smb and this might be your solution.

    Okay I’m not sure I am doing this correct.  I did the first set of commands but I also did the last set by the „Note“ to disable „DHCAST128“  Am I suppose to do both?  I am asking because it’s not working for my Buffalo TeraServer which it appears others got theirs to work. 

    If I was not suppose to do the last command. How do I re-enable „DHCAST128“?

    I get the same error dialog in Lion when I try to connect to a PowerBook G3 Wallstreet PDQ running AppleShare IP 6.3.3 on OS 9.  So I am curious if your „hack“ would also work for AppleShare. 

    I clicked on your link to „Apple Developer Forum,“ but despite my being logged in there, your link does not take me to a specific discussion offering the original „solution and explanation.“  Therefore, please make your URL more specific.

    And will your method work for AppleShare IP servers?  If so, how does your method need to be changed to accomodate AppleShare IP servers?

    I look forward to your answer.

    Thank you.

    the terminal is asking for the password but when I tried to type it nothing types. I tried to type any letter or number but the terminal stay at the same point, like I didn’t type anything. So I went to the users and disable the password, restart the machine and logon again without any password. I had starter the terminal and paste the following without quotes “

    sudo chmod o+w
    /Library/Preferences
defaults write
    /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_host_prefs_version -int 1″ and the terminal ask again for the passwordi just push the enter and the terminal said „sorry, try again“ after 3 times the terminal goes again to the initial screen…at this point I can type anything but when it asks for the password I cannot type anything. Can you please help me?
    ALso pls clarify that the order is correct sudo chmod o+w
    /Library/Preferences
defaults write
    /Library/Preferences/com.apple.AppleShareClient afp_host_prefs_version -int 1
