Problem With Qnap and MacOs Catalina

Post by thepampa » Mon Feb 17, 2020 11:59 pm

Hi everyone. It is my first post in this forum.
We are having a problem with our Nas QNAP TS-453Be and the MacOs Catalina.
What happens is that we connect the Nas by AFP in Macbook, and it works, but when you leave the network and then reconnect (Example, you leave the office and come back) does not allow the connection to the Nas. It gives connection error because you want to connect as a Guest. I find it striking that there is no report in this forum because it is something that is happening to almost everyone who has MacOs Catalina and a Nas server. The solution for now is reset the Macbook.
I leave a reference post from the Mac forum but still have no response: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/250794335.
I wanted to know if anyone had any solution.
Thank you so much.
regards

Solution is probably to use SMB or NFS. Apple is slowly deprecating AFP.

I would try disabling AFP under Bonjour to force SMB and set the minimum SMB to 3.

Disabling AFP under Bonjour only disables the AFP advertisment - it does not disable the actual service - that is under Apple Networking under the Win/Mac/NFS.
I would leave Lowest SMB at 2.0 - devices will negotiate the highest common SMB.
You may want to try Wireshark ( https://www.wireshark.org/#download ) at one of the reconnect sessions to see what the devices are trying to do.
