I am setting up a media server on an older Mac. I have the drive set up and it is accessible across my entire (Mac) network via AFP.
I have a Raspberry Pi running Buster and will be running Plex Media Server on it. I want to connect to the AFP Share from my Pi and mount it at boot up. I can see the Pi's shared folders from the Mac side. I can Connect to Server from the Pi and see my shared Mac folders. So I can verify that yes, I can connect bi-directionally bit as a manual connection - I need it to be automatic.
I have tried mount_afp, mount, mount.cifs and a variety of other commands, switches, options, variations, and utilities. At best I get "Authetication failed". At worst, I get "bad UNC". For fun (for the Pi, not for me), it will tell me "Incorrect server:volume specification" - I swear I heard it snickering at me as tears of frustration began to well up and the f-bomb echoes across my apartment. I have spent weeks digging through Google and various forums and cannot get past this issue I have.
TIA for any help.
I found the answer (finally)...
I needed to use the follwoing syntax:
mount_afp afp://username:firstname.lastname@example.org/volumename/ /Volumes/mntpnt
Not sure why this did not work the first time I tried it but it is working now.
