How does Acronis Files Connect (formerly ExtremeZ-IP) use TCP/IP and Appletalk?
Acronis Files Connect use of AppleTalk is limited to broadcast and service discovery functions (we also support SLP and Bonjour).
Since Apple's newer AFP protocol provides a big performance advantage over AppleTalk, Acronis Files Connect uses TCP/IP over AFP for file sharing activities. We support AFP v3.1 for Mac OS X clients and AFP v2.2 for Mac OS 9 clients.
