    Interesting that you recommend SMB, I thought it was the other way round,  AFP only

     

    We have an mac server running 10.12. and all clients on mac 10.13.5.

    • Is it better for us to switch the sharing to SMB?
    • Why do you choose "full control" and not " Read/write" ?
    • We have problems with project sharing from time to time, would it be better to grant  "Full control" and get less PS conflicts.

      • If you are having issues with your current setup, yes. However its more important to ensure that ONLY ONE protocol is being used.

      • This reduces access problems in general and seems the most reliable.

    So, Vectorworks/my workstation does still directly communicate with the shared file?

     

    - I wished, Vectorworks would communicate with the server-app which should be able now to manage more then one person committing and refreshing changes simultaneously, right? Or does VW still communicate with the shared file, as well?
