services for mac (SFM)
« on: August 08, 2017, 02:16:01 AM »
Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Services for Macintosh provides an integration platform for mixed Windows 2000–based and Macintosh-based networks. Services for Macintosh is an integrated component of Windows 2000 that makes it possible for computer and Macintosh clients to share files and printers. With Services for Macintosh, Windows 2000 and Macintosh users can share files on Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) or AppleTalk networks, share printers, and gain access to remote networks with the Routing and Remote Access service feature in Windows 2000.

Services for Macintosh® (SFM) was a file server developed by Microsoft® in the 1990’s based on the Apple® Filing Protocol (AFP).
SFM allowed Mac users to operate within a Windows network using the Mac’s native file sharing protocol. SFM was built into
Microsoft’s Server products from Windows® NT 3.1 through Windows Server 2003.

With the release of Windows Server 2008, SFM is officially End-of-Life. Many organizations running older versions of Windows
Server continue to use SFM, however Microsoft is no longer supporting it and those organizations will need to evaluate
replacement options. This white paper helps explain those options, and provides guidance for organizations that wish to move
to a supported platform.
