    external hard drive not showing up on AFP server
    hi

    i have successfully connected a couple of times to a firewire external hard drive connected to my dad's iMac over the internet (AFP server) for the purpose of backing up some files, but now it doesn't show up at all as a volume when i connect to his iMac through finder/go/connect to server. i don't believe that any settings were changed, so don't understand why it isn't showing up. currently when i get info on the drive 'shared folder' is checked, everyone has permission to read and write and 'ignore ownership on this volume' is checked, and file sharing is enabled in system preferences/sharing.

    does anyone have any ideas of what i can do to get the drive to show up again?

    thanks

    Silly question I guess but is Dad's iMac switched on and the external HDD connected?
