Name

netatalk.conf — Configuration file used by Netatalk to determine its general configuration

Synopsis

netatalk.conf

etc/default/netatalk

DESCRIPTION

netatalk.conf is the configuration file used by afpd to determine what portions of the file system will be shared via AFP, as well as their behaviors.

If netatalk has been configured with --enable-debian, it is not netatalk.conf but etc/default/netatalk.

Any line not prefixed with # is interpreted. The configuration lines are composed like:

option = value

The possible options and their meanings are:

AFPD_GUEST

Sets the id of the guest user to a local user on the system.

AFPD_MAX_CLIENTS

Sets the maximum number of clients that can simultaneously connect to the server.

AFPD_RUN

Enables the afpd daemon if set to "yes". This should be enabled if you are planning on using netatalk as a file server.

AFPD_UAM_LIST

Sets the default UAMs for afpd (and papd, if printer authentication is compiled in) to use.

Example: AFPD_UAMLIST="-U uams_guest.so,uams_randnum.so"

CNID_METAD_RUN

Enables the cnid_metad daemon if set to "yes". This should be enabled if you are going to use the dbd CNID backend.

CNID_CONFIG

Configuration options for cnid_metad. See: cnid_metad(8)

ATALK_BGROUND

"yes" will set netatalk to initialize in the background, and "no" will cause normal initialization.

ATALK_NAME

Sets the machines' Appletalk name.

ATALK_ZONE

Sets the machines' Appletalk zone.

ATALKD_RUN

Enables the atalkd daemon if set to "yes". This should be enabled if you are planning on providing Appletalk services.

PAPD_RUN

Enables the papd daemon if set to "yes". This should be enabled if you are planning on using netatalk as a print server.

ATALK_MAC_CHARSET

Set the Mac client codepage, used by atalkd and papd to convert extended characters from the Unix to the Mac codepage.

ATALK_UNIX_CHARSET

Set the Unix codepage, used by atalkd and papd to convert extended characters from the Unix to the Mac codepage. Has to match the codepage of the configuration files.
