    What kind of errors are you getting?  Do you have the appletalk installed on the server?

    Author Comment

    AFP is installed on the server
    users are being denied access to the volume shares, when previously they had access
    files are occasionally getting corrupted (Quark files - we copy down locally to the server and return it when done working on it) - we don't work directly off the server
