After more than a year as a DreamHost customer, I just found out yesterday that the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) is supported out-of-the-box. This is fantastic, since I needed a way to mount my home directory as a drive, and WebDAV wasn’t an option because it interferes with shell access.
The only problem is that when mounting the home directory, AFP reports that my password is being sent in the clear. Is there any way around that? I tried enabling the SSH option for AFP, but it didn’t work.
