    Man-o-man(!) did we go after a similar one in here but never arrived at a resolution.

    Some of the basics still call for checking:

    - Do all of the AFP servers have file-sharing over TCP/IP enabled?

    - Is AppleTalk switched on in the Networking Prefs Panel on the OS X machines?

    - Is AppleTalk switched on in the AppleTalk CP on the OS 9 hosts?

    On the OS X machines, you can test pinging of the OS 9 hosts if you know their addresses via /Applications/Utilities/Network Utility.
