As stated in the Introduction, the aim of this walkthrough is to enable authenticated access to users' home folders on the server.  These are managed through the <tt>afp.conf</tt> file, full usage details of which can be found [http://netatalk.sourceforge.net/3.0/htmldocs/afp.conf.5.html here].
 +
 
 +
Open the configuration file with your preferred text editor:
 +
vi /usr/local/etc/afp.conf
 +
 
 +
Unlike many configuration files, this file uses semi-colons to denote comments.  Remove the leading semi-colon from the line containing [Home], then enter the following line on a new line just below:
 +
basedir regex = /home
 +
Save the file.
 +
 
 +
You can now launch Netatalk:
 +
/etc/init.d/netatalk start
 +
 
 +
Attempt to log in from a client on the LAN.  From the Finder in OS X 10.8, one of the ways you can do this is from the Go menu, entering the following in the resultant dialogue:
 +
afp://ip.ad.dr.ess/
 +
After hitting Connect you should immediately be offered an authentication dialogue. Enter the username and password of a user on the server, and proceed.  On successful authentication a new Finder window should open allowing access to the root of that user's home folder.
 +
 
 +
And you're done!
