flexibug wrote:I am using A DS412+ with a RAID 1 config currently with 2 disks only. It has DSM 4.0-2198 installed. On my iMac Snow Leopard with V 10.6.8 is installed (not even Lion yet!).
When copying files from an USB stick connected to the iMac onto a Shared folder on the DS412+ some files cannot be copied when the connection is done using the “devices” pane in OSX finder (error -36 and copy aborted). I assume this connection is AFP (per default). When I connect using “Go To Server” and explicitly prefix the server address with “smb://…” the very same files can be copied without any problem. I have exactly the same problem when copying the files from the stick to the iMac locally first and then trying to copy the files from the iMac’s local harddisk to the DS412+ (so its not the stick or the USB connection).
Now for the fun part: after having copied the files successfully using smb (cifs) I can see them “completetly normal” using the smb finder connection to the share. When I additionally open a connection using afp (clicking on the “shared” device in the finder pane) pointing to the same share, I only get aliases (not the files) listed for the recently copied files. I can’t copy these aliases back to the iMac (Error -50 in finder). I can, however, copy them back using the (still open) smb connection.
Does DSM 4.0 have a problem with AFP in general? Again: this is not Lion, it is not about time machine, just plain copying of files from an OSX SL iMac to an “AFP folder” on the DS412+… Thanks for any help.

I cheated, as despite what APC tell you, all my Macs use APC's PCNS to talk to the network card direct, the Synology is hooked up via the USB port and works fine. Not experimented with the ipkg side of things yet, should do being an IT bod.

It seems to point to the Synology, it may be worth trying a direct connection Mac - DS just to eliminate the transport, I have had odd things with switches before (my background is network/system design, installation, analysis and fault resolution).
humbfig wrote:I can't help you with details because I can't remember, it's been too long. But I started using "afp://" when connecting my macbook to my DS411. The amount of problems were such that I gave up entirely. Since then I use only "smb://".
