AFP, or Apple Filing Protocol, is the method used by Apple Inc to connect Macintosh computers. Our Ethernet disks run a server that supports this connection, so they can communicate with nearly all Mac OS versions.

Click GO in the Finder Menu bar, then choose "Connect to Server" Type in afp:// followed by the IP address. Click "Connect" to proceed.


A prompt will appear requesting a user name and password. Enter the information for a user on the drive, and any shares on the device will be accessible.
