Question:

How does Acronis Files Connect (formerly ExtremeZ-IP) use TCP/IP and Appletalk?

 

Answer:

Acronis Files Connect use of AppleTalk is limited to broadcast and service discovery functions (we also support SLP and Bonjour).

Since Apple's newer AFP protocol provides a big performance advantage over AppleTalk, Acronis Files Connect uses TCP/IP over AFP for file sharing activities. We support AFP v3.1 for Mac OS X clients and AFP v2.2 for Mac OS 9 clients.

Question:

I have been using the "mount volume" command to mount AppleTalk-based AFP server volumes. This command doesn't seem to work with Acronis Files Connect (formerly ExtremeZ-IP) servers. What's wrong?

 

Answer:

The original "mount volume" scripting addition works only for AppleTalk volumes. This command used the following syntax:

mount volume "volume" on server "server" in AppleTalk zone "zone"
