Resources

Netatalk is a free, open-source implementation of the Apple Filing Protocol. It allows Unix-like operating systems to serve as file, print and time servers for Macintosh computers.

Installation

Emerge

Install net-fs/netatalk:

root #emerge --ask net-fs/netatalk

Configuration

In this example, the icon model that appears on clients is a Mac Pro and all private IPv4 hosts are allowed access to a Time Machine volume.

Create the /mnt/storage/TimeMachine folder:

root #mkdir /mnt/storage/TimeMachine

Allow all users read+write access. In practice a more secure configuration should be used with uam list = "uams_dhx.so uams_dhx2.so"

root #chmod 777 /mnt/storage/TimeMachine

Edit /etc/afp.conf:

FILE /etc/afp.conf
[Global]
	mimic model = MacPro
	hosts allow = 10.0.0.0/8 172.16.0.0/20 192.168.0.0/16
	uam list = uams_guest.so
[TimeMachine]
	path = /mnt/storage/TimeMachine
	time machine = yes

Usage

Services

To start netatalk:

root #/etc/init.d/netatalk start

To start netatalk at boot:

root #rc-update add netatalk default
