Apple Networking

Apple devices including Macs, iPhones, iPods and iPad support standard wired and wireless networking technologies, but they also utilize custom applications and some special techniques for networking with each other and with non-Apple devices. Apple manufacturers the AirPort line of wireless networking products, and has its own networking protocols, AppleTalk and AFP (Apple Filing Protocol).

Currently experiencing an issue with access to mapped drives using SMB protocol with a MacBook Pro running High Sierra, we only see this issue with that machine. The problem effects the user when attempting to move or rename a file in on the share, the MacBook becomes hung up, showing only the spinning pin wheel and needs to be completely restarted in order to allow the user to use the computer. I found the article below attempted recommended changes (no resolution) also opened a ticket with apple support and was directed to open a pay per incident ticket because the technician had no insight other then what I performed on the issue other thanking for directing him to apples article and saying that what he recommends I should attempt.

Here are two Macs running macOS 10.13 in a WLAN, sharing a freshly installed QNAP NAS box for SMB file storage and Time Machine. While Mac A is behaving perfectly normal, Mac B can't see any of the services on the NAS: neither the SMB shares nor the Time Machine show up. Pinging the QNAP works, though.
Plug in an Ethernet cable in Mac B and all is fine, just like Mac A.

I've checked just about anything about the WLAN I can think of: firewall and misc. TCP/IP settings, DHCP, duplicate addresses, ARP and DNS caches, VLANs, 802.1X etc. - to no avail. Why in the world can Mac B ping the QNAP box but not see any of its services? Why is only WLAN impaired, why does the cable work?

Quite bizarre. Any suggestions what else I could check? I'm just one step from re-installing macOS ...

I work in a hospital. We use the Stratus iPad app for interpretation.  We have a guest internet circuit that these iPads are on.  The circuit was recently upgraded from 35 Mbps to 100 Mbps. No other changes that i know of. Around that time the Stratus app stopped connecting. There is an asa 5505 on this circuit, but only default config is enabled.

 I took the ipad home and the app worked fine on my home wifi.  I ahve contacted the vendor and our ISP. Both claim it must be a firewall issue, but nothing has changed.  Any ideas?

hi techs,
I am trying to play videos and pictures from my Note 5 to my Apple TV and suddenly it's not working in the last one year or so. The last time at work successfully was about a year ago and I was using allcast.  this week I've been trying to connect my phone again and no matter what I try my Note 5 will not detect the Apple TV and if some of the apps do list it it will not connect. I also tried my work Android phone which is I think an S7 and it wouldn't connect either. I have reset the network connections several times on both units and tried repeatedly with no success. I'm starting to wonder if Apple has made a change that everybody but me knows about. at this point what I think I'm going to do is buy the Chromecast and plug that in right alongside the Apple TV to see if I can use that to interface with my phone since all of the apps I've downloaded aren't working at all. My Note 5 is up-to-date with the most recent software and the Apple TV is also up-to-date with the most recent software and it is only about one year old. Any assistance with this issue is appreciated.
 thank you

My last post on here detailed a problem with favourites disappearing from the sidebar.  I got several very detailed and helpful answers, the main gist of these being move away from the Apple version of Samba to a less buggy version.

Before I undertake this I thought I'd pose an alternative question, that being is there anything like mapped network drives on the MAC?  This is what we are using the favourites for, to point at shared folders on a Windows 7 PC acting as a file server.

We have a QNAP on our network which we access via AFP with Mac computers.

Recently we have had a dialogue box pop up:

Message From Server
Something wrong with the volume's CNID DB, using temporary CNID DB instead. Check server messages for details!

Coinciding with this message, we have been unable to view a certain folder via AFP (but can seem to see it via SMB).

From this message I think the CNID database the Mac machines use to access the AFP share may be corrupted but have no idea on how to refresh it or rebuild. We are no longer using this device for TimeMachine backups (as other forum posts have pointed at)

The inaccessible files/folders have since been downloaded locally to machines but we need to fix this as soon as we can, knowing any other folders and documents will not disappear as this one has.

Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you,

Having a really strange issue, I inherited a OS maverick server that was set to share certain folders, each person has read and write permissions on each others folders, whats happening is that If one person moves a folder from their desktop into their server folder, non of the other users with permissions can access it. I have to log into the server and redo the permissions so that others can access it, Its driving me nuts

Everyone is running 10.9.5 except one who has 10.8.5.
