MyCloudEX2Ultra Unable to connect using afp after last firmware update

Hey Everyone,

I work at a print shop. We have a WD MyCloudEX2Ultra drive. Our shop has both Macs and PCs. After the last firmware update (5.19.117) my Macs are having trouble connecting to the drive. I was able to get around it for now by switching my connection to “smb” from “afp”, but this is coming with some lag and other undesirable effects. Does anyone know if there is a setting that I’m missing that would allow me to use the “afp” to connect?

(I’m by no means an IT expert…I’m the graphics guy…but I know enough to get me in trouble)

Support for AFP was dropped:
