We are using OSX servers and clients with AFP (Apple Filing Protocol) and want to connect the only Windows (Vista x64) client to the server shares without having to enable SMB. Is there still any AFP client for Windows available?

All that I've found are Windows AFP servers, but that's not what we need.

Accepted Answer

"AFP". That brings me back.

I'd go with SMB for the simple reason that I'd trust Apple or whoever to correctly implement SMB before I'd trust Microsoft or whoever to properly implement AFP. Not because of relative competence, but because AFP is strange, and does things in unexpected ways.

I've implemented an AFP server, so learned this the hard way.
