while configuring a new Nas4Free server where multiple users (8 at the moment) need to backup their files from their own computer I hit a wall :
adding more than 4 AFP share would stop Zeroconf/Bonjour from working (with 4 share or less everything is fine)!?!
Digging a bit I found that mDNSResponderPosix would not start if there are more than 4 AFP shares defined in mdnsresponder.conf, it would read the 4 first shares defined, start the service, then read the definition of the 5th share and crash with an error (no kidding?). See here :
Code: Select all
nas4free: ~ # /usr/local/bin/mDNSResponderPosix -v 2 -f /var/etc/mdnsresponder.conf [...] Service name: "Backup Server" Service type: "_adisk._tcp."

Is there some way to fix/bypass this???
P.S: I'm running Nas4Free beta 10.1.0.2.1665 on this machine.
