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

NO. AFP is for connecting to other Apple systems.

you need to use SMB prefix to access Windows resources.

Win2003 supports AFP but only up to version 2.2 , it may work if you downgrade El Capitan to below 10.11.3 (that's the Apple upgrade that broke lots of other 3rd party AFP stacks.
