10.4.7 -> AFP to OS 9.1 No Dice. 10.3.9 -> AFP to OS 9.1 Dice! What Gives?

Okay, here's the scenario:

A G5 running 10.4.7  attempts to connect to an ancient Performa 6400
running OS 9.1.

Error messgae results, reads as follows:

This file server uses an incompatible version of the AFP protocol. You
cannot connect to it.

Same G5 now, different partition, running 10.3.9, connect without a
problem to the same OS 9.1 partition on the 6400.

Is this a known issue? Is there a workaround, a kludge, should I
consult Apple's Knowledge Base, spend hours tracing it down via Google,
smoke some chicken feet while chanting and hope that will work?

What say you, good people?

It won't work in 10.4.7 but will work in 10.3.9.  You have 10.3.9.  So 
what's the problem.  Use 10.3.9 until you have no further use for the 
6400.  That's what I'm doing.

Yes:

As described in this article, you need to filesharing via TCP/IP on the
6400, as Tiger doesn't support connecting to AFP over the AppleTalk
protocol.

Um, why not just enable filesharing via TCP/IP on the 6400 instead?
