can't add share on NAS

Recommended Posts

I have more or less the same problem. My backup device is an NAS and I can select it and use it in 6.1. In 8.1 I get a variety of error statements such as the one shown in the above post. I cannot add the NAS whether I enter the name, or the afp:// numerical address, nothing works. In 6.1 one could select the NAS using a finder-like selector and that was that. Now the wizards at retrospect have seen to it that one can only add the NAS via a proprietary technique that does not work.


I leave my NAS logged in all the time since it is also the location of the iTunes library and it has other uses as well. No password needed. That is, the NAS needs a password but since It is auto mounted at boot, it shows in the finder without further entry of the password.
