I have an original AppleTV and had enabled AFP sharing with a prior verision of ATV Flash. I installed the ATV 2.3 upgrade and v3.4 version of ATV Flash and now AFP Sharing doesn’t work. I tried following the setup instructions again and got this message in Terminal after enetering the 1st command in the instructions.
Protocol major versions differ: 1 vs. 2
New 3.4 version only supports SSH2. The has been updated to reflect this change. Sorry for the trouble.
OK, so I see there is a 3.4.2 version out now. Well I installed this, ran the smart updater as per the instructions and got a successfully installed message. Great Success!!!
Well, not really …
While ideally I would like to mount via afp like I could with a certain other patch, I understand that more than likely I would have to use smb, oh well, better than nothing I guess.
No such luck.
Tried everything (including authentication) and all I can get is the following:
Network Mount Failed
mount_smbfs:negotiate phase failed:
syserr = Connection refused
I had very high hopes, but I am seriously beginning to think I have wasted my money with this thing…[/quote]
If you’re attempting to connect to a Mac via SMB, this option must be enabled first in System Preferences > Sharing > File Sharing. Select which folders you want to share, and select a login/password combo for them.
Once that is done, you will need to setup a manual share point on the Apple TV. Go through these steps, and make sure to specify the SMB protocol.
