SMB is in effect Windows sharing .. so you can see folders shared to other Windows users whereas AFP sharing is a special add-on for Windows Server .. which uses Appletalk .. only specific folders assigned as AppleShares are visible under AFP .. hence the different folders visible.

So you think i should re do the share? Because i have everything set up like they said. Its just that when i connect to the sever with SMB i can see more folders in a share then when i use apf.  There would be nothing that could be done on the folder level? I could always kill this share off and re-do it at night.

Are these sub-folders in the share??
It does sound like a permission error.

When you open the shared folder via SMB you see MORE folders than when you open the SAME share with AFP?

Correct these are sub-folders in the share.

Yes i see more via SMBA then i do AFP. But i have a windows share and a Mac share on the same folder. When you go in the wizzard you can share out the folder boh via windows and mac.

Turns out when we did a move from one sever to another, some how something happen to the folders. If you rename or alter a folder it will show up. Maybe it has something to do with how Afp works with folders and how long the names can be? but some of the folders had short names also. I dont really know how or why. I just know that going through smb and changing all the folder names i was able to see it via afp.

ALso .. disabling and re-enabling the share can sort this out.
