    Just updated my MacBook Pro to 10.9 without issue. I also have a Mac mini on my network, still running 10.8. It's name on the network is macmini.local.

    If I try to use AFP to connect from the MacBook to the mini with afp://macmini.local, I get "There was a problem connecting to the server...."

    I then enabled Samba sharing on the Mac mini, and connected with smb://macmini.local successfully. I know that SMB is meant to replace AFP in Mavericks. Does this mean that AFP connections simply won't work from a Mavericks machine anymore? Or is this just a bug?

    I'm having a similar issue, but both machines are upgraded to Mavericks, and I can connect from machine 2 to machine 1 via AFP, but not the other way around. SMB doesn't work either.

    Will be interested to see if this is a widespread issue.

    Do you have this box checked in the sharing options to enable AFP?

    I think you're showing me the 10.9 sharing pane, but it's more-or-less the same under 10.8. Anyhow, yes: AFP sharing is checked.

    Yes, that's 10.9.

    Fine, but I don't need file sharing turned on on the 10.9 machine. The issue is connecting to my 10.8 machine. File sharing is obviously turned on on that one, with AFP enabled.

    I misread and thought you were going the other direction.

    I have a similar problem. My macbook pro upgraded to 10.9. I can connect to my Netgear Readynas by AFP, but when I try and transfer any data I get an error message.

    But if I use CIFS or SMB it works okay. Leads me to believe they will be getting rid of AFP completely.
