OS X (10.11) El Capitan Finder Connection Failure ( please don't suggest AFP )

EX4 doesn’t support NFS

AFP is depreciated; **bleep** even Apple is trying to ditch it…

Rather than maintaining both AFP and SMBX in parallel, Apple is now consolidating its future efforts in its own implementation of Microsoft’s SMB2 protocol. Macs running OS X 10.9 Mavericks and higher will use SMB2 as their default file sharing protocol when connecting to each other or to PCs running [Windows Vista](http://viglink.pgpartner.com/rd.php?r=814&m=1582371317&q=n&rdgt=1444407107&it=1444839107&et=1445011907&priceret=45.99&pg= 3&k=eadc7342a614740edb710362b6244687&source=feed&url=http%3A%2F%2Fc%2Eaffil%2Ewalmart%2Ecom%2Ft%2Fcsepg01%3Fl%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww%2Ewalmart%2Ecom%252Fip%252FTrippLite%2DKeyspan%2DRF%2DRemote%2Dfor%2DWindows%2D7%2Damp%2DVista%252F31157528%253Fwmlspartner%253Dpricegrabber%2Ecom%2526affcmpid%253D1501957153%2526tmode%253D0000%2526bcfg%253D0c2d7f3c7f0a3d610357d9335ca2795f%2526veh%253Dcse&st=feed&mt=~~~~~~ n~~~), 7 or 8.

In a public technology overview, Apple says, “SMB2 is superfast, increases security, and improves Windows compatibility.”“SMB2 is superfast, increases security, and improves Windows compatibility.”

It’s pretty much SMB or bust…

Yes I have the same problem… oddly I have 2 EX4’s and the problem has manifested on one and not the other after a power cut. Ummmm 

I really wonder what the reason for your issues is, since I’m on El Capitan as well and don’t encounter any issues with AFP. SMB2 implementation in my EX4 would be highly appreciated.

btw the forum is not very easy to navigate anymore…

Problem solved after Apple update… and I agree the forum is impossible to navigate (easily at least)
