Hi guys,

I'm trying to connect from a Mac with El Capitan, using the AFP protocol to a Windows 2003 file server share. When I try doing the following:

afp://user:password@server_name/share

I am getting a 'the version of the server you are trying to connect to is not supported'. I need to be able to use AFP to try something! Any ideas guys?

Cheers
Yashy
