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).

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.
