macOS 10.12 (aka Sierra) is fully compatible to be used as a client connected to a HELIOS UB64 server.
macOS 10.12 supports SMB, SMB2, NFS, and AFP to connect to server volumes. The default connection type is SMB. So after calling
Connect to Server... in the Finder, it no longer works just entering the server name because it would try an SMB connection. The solution is to use the protocol identifier, e.g.:
Browsing via Bonjour computers in the sidebar of a Finder window works fine.
Note: For instructions on how to install a current Java, which is required for some HELIOS client programs, e.g. HELIOS Admin, read HELIOS Tech Info 140.
The AFP volume-specific password feature is no longer supported. So, when there are clients in the network running macOS 10.12 this feature should not be used anymore.
