If instead I click on the NAS device icon in the finder sidebar and kind of let the volumes "automount" by selecting them, many (but not all) the times, they mount as smb shares. Is there a way to tell Mac OS to NEVER mount the shares as smb by default, and always use afp?
I don't want to disable the smb service on the NAS b/c I have windows machines in the house.
I know I can now use some of the automount suggestions in this post (and I will), but I am still curious about this old problem.
On My PRO, with both AFP and CIFS(SMB) shares enabled, The PRO I have THREE Icons in the sidebar: One looking as a Imac(AFP), One looking as a WinDoze-BSOD and one looking as a timecapsule(due to the enabled timemachine-support). If you click on the "Imac-nas-icon" you get AFP, If you choose BSOD you get CIFS(SMB).
