Netatalk is a free, open-source implementation of the AppleTalk (AFP) suite of protocols. It allows Unix-like operating systems to serve as file, print and time servers for Macintosh computers.

Installation

There is a netatalk package available in AUR. But the PKGBUILD should be modified to allow the faster CDB backend to be used.

Add Template:Codeline to the Template:Codeline line.

Now run makepkg and install the package.

Configuration

Edit the afpd configuration File (Template:Codeline) and the follwing line to the very end of the file replacing the existing one:

Template:File

Configure shared volumes

To add a shared volume, we have to edit the Template:Codeline-Configuration file, add a line like this:

Template:File

Warning: Avoid nesting volumes, do not share directories, which are filed under already shared directories

Enable Time-Machine Support

To enable Time-Machine-Support just add Template:Codeline to the options for the volume in Template:Codeline.

Enable Autodiscover

To enable Autodiscover (your osx systems see your netatalk-server in the finder), we have to install avahi and nss-mdns

  1. pacman -S avahi nss-mdns

Now configure the nss service (Template:Codeline) and add Template:Codeline to the Template:Codeline-line so it looks like this:

Template:File

Create a new service configuration file (Template:Codeline):

Template:File
