Guest access fixed for classic software

Hey everyone, FWIW guest access on my classic share is fixed. Connect to afp://www.tauceti.org as guest (should mount automatically, if not mount the "classic" share) and have a look.

Great collection!!

Thanks John. Someone mentioned they were having problems extracting some of the software. Have you tried any yet?

Disregard. They work. The "problem" is that most of these throw you an error if you try to mount them on a modern system saying "legacy image should be converted". Easy fix if folks would just google :)

Is this supposed to be online still?
I'm trying to mount this through afpfs-ng, but I keep getting a credential failure.

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.

It would seem it's afpfs-ng that doesn't handle guest logins very well :/

It works fine from an actual mac. Awesome stuff

Oh, glad you found it useful!
