Hello all,

Currently, i am using smb server but now I want to change it into afp server.

what will be the exact way to change it and connect using afp server?

currently these library are used in the project:
import jcifs.smb.NtlmPasswordAuthentication;
import jcifs.smb.SmbFile;


Thanks in advance.

There is apparently no stable implementation of an AFP client in Java

What can be done now?
Becuase earlier we were fetching files from smb server, now it has been changed into afp server.

What is the suitable way to access the files from afp server using current project?

Production is suffering a lot so quick action is needed the most...

Thanks,
Amzad

If you've got a Java client, there could be a workaround but it would be kludgy probably. I don't have the time to look into it, unless it's a paid job

https://sourceforge.net/projects/jaffer/ is a possibility but the probably more recent version on Github says that it's unstable

Try and build an adapter server.
Java SMB Client  ->SMB+AFP adapter-> AFP server
