Hi, I have my Windows Server 2012 up and running fine. However accessing from my Mac is a pain - slow and unreliable, especially when awaking from sleep. Just awful really. This is a known fact. Macs suck at SMB shares. It does not matter if the is Windows Server or Windows 7/8. So I want to a find a way to make an AFP share on my Windows Server. The only idea I have thought of is:- Make a Hyper-V VM Machine with Linux and then install Netatalk. However could I then use the same share for both SMB and AFP? Could the Linux VM point to a SMB Share (on the Windows Server Host) and then share that "share" using AFP? If the above won't work then I have heard that Macs are better at NFS than SMB. So I may give NFS a try. NFS is natively supported in Windows Server. But again my question is can I use the same shared drive to serve both SMB and NFS clients? Any other ideas for sharing with Macs? Thanks!
