netatalk is a standard part of most Linux distributions including SuSE...
(The best in my opinion!!) So my references will be wrt SuSE.
look in /etc/atalk for the config files and /etc/rc.d for the starting atalk
Start/Stop with rcatalk restart or /etc/rc.d/atalk restart or equiv path...
the most important file is /etc/atalk/atalkd.conf.
Initially at the bootom enter eth0 and nothing else. If there is
eth0 -net 111 -addr 222 etc or similar then comment (save) that out with a #
Must have just AT THE START eth0
restart atalk. atalk will take sometime to start (2-3 minutes) and you will
see its status in /var/log/messages. after it has started have a look at
the NEW entry in atalkd.conf. It should say
eth0 -net0-65534 -addr 66.6 or something similar.
IF there is a 0.0 anywhere, it has failed. Rip everything out and start again.
In theory before all that, you should configure afpd.conf. The easiest
entry is say
at the bottom of the file. There are MANY other methods.
This defines a SERVER name that can be seen in Chooser
In AppleVolumes.default and you can have many names here, enter say
/common Common options=crlf access=unixusernamecasesensitivetoo
This specifies the path /common is to be called Common, the actual AppleShare.
Make sure that you know the unix level name and passwd in the usual way.
Leave in '~' This specifies the username home location as a share as well.
Must restart the atalk server to make changes operational.
Connect using Chooser.
This is just a start, it is very much more powerful than this description.
AppleShareIP for example is standard Server service!!!
