"No idea what afps-ng is, to be honest. But, my Mac folks who have tried to access it haven't had an issue. Can you dig into your log files and see if there are any clues? I'll do the same on my end. "

Classic Apps

If you're interested, you can connect to tauceti.org via AFP, connect as guest, and mount "classic". It has quite a bit of classic Macintosh software you may find handy.
