I have a G4 running 10.4.1 on my network that upon login keeps looking for a server that is no longer online. I have checked Startup items in Library, and Login items under system preferences/accounts and both are empty. How do I turn this off?

I might be totally off, but have you checked the internet and mail settings? Or shared drives and folders?

I don't have Tiger, but it may have something to do with AppleTalk settings, check there.

I'm sure you'll get an answer there quickly. You'll need to register, but it's a very helpful place.

I had the same problem when I first upgrade to Tiger, turned out to be third party problem, more details here.

although recently I'm getting the same error on my Pismo whenever I start Classic away from my local network. I think there's a server alias somewhere. causing the trouble. [ohwell]

I had a similar problem when I upped to 10.4.1 especially with Classic trying to connect to something (unknown) that wasn't there.

Do you have Classic booting on login?
Tiger handles AFP differently than previous systems (i.e. it isn't truly AppleTalk compatible anymore) and this can cause problems if you have stuff referring to OS 9 based clients or no longer extant disks/servers/etc.

I cured it by dumping all the non essential Classic preferences (bit of a pain but I didn't have time to chore through looking for whatever was causing the problem) and seaching out a load of old aliases that 10.3 apparently ignored or understood were "not there" where 10.4 just went "searching for AFP server"

The Classic Apple Menu Items seemed to be a big offender (or rather the way Tiger now handles this on Classic startup.

Also check your favourites and recent folders/servers lists to make sure there is nothing in there either.

Basically Apple appear to be dropping the level of support that Classic and pre OS X get from the OS - no doubt the first step towards total phaseout in 10.5 or 10.6....
