Strange AFP/SMB Connection issues? Check this out.

Rich Trouton and Peter Bukowinski ran into an odd issue on some of their machines.  They would time out while trying to connect to a SMB or AFP share with a known good Username/Pass.  The problem?  iDisk.

The machines would try to connect to iDisk even if the share was an internal-only fileshare.  As strange as this sounds, removing some iDisk settings will fix the issue.  Rich has the details on his blog.
