    In the last week I have been getting a persistent warning on my desktop:

    Connection Failed
    This file server is running on your machine. Please access the volumes and files locally.

    Sometimes there will be 5 or 6 of these warnings to be cleared from the desktop.
    All my drives are mounted correctly (2 internal 1 external USB drive) and there are no other file servers set up on my network. Does anybody have any idea what's going on? I'm lost and I couldn't find anything online to help with this.

    My machine is 400MHz PowerPC G4 700 MB SDRam running 10.4.11

    Any help is appreciated.

    I realize this thread was from awhile ago, but I am interested in finding an answer for you. Please post your operating system, and just to clarify things... This connection failed is the connection between your computer and your external drives correct?
