Apple Changing to WebDAV only

Heads Up

This is a big one folks! Apple has openly stated they are phasing out AFP? access to iDisk?. This is a big deal for Dot.Mac? users running in Mac OS? 9 as OS 9 ONLY has AFP access built-in. This change does not affect Mac OS X users which use WebDAV? protocol for iDisk connections already.

Mac OS? X (10.2.x or newer recommended) and a valid dot mac account

Mac OS X dot.mac

Using Apple's Dot.Mac? system

Before there was Dot.Mac XTNL URL, there was Apple iTools XTNL URL for Mac OS? 9 (which was re-branded Dot.Mac) and before that there was eWorld XTNL URL (that goes back to 1994; 'true' überGeeks will want this eWorld book XTNL URL still available through Amazon - a scary thought!)
