/usr/local/etc/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 /usr/local/etc/netatalk.conf but :DESTDIR:/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_GUESTSets the id of the guest user to a local user on the system.
AFPD_MAX_CLIENTSSets the maximum number of clients that can simultaneously connect to the server.
AFPD_RUNEnables the afpd daemon if set to "yes". This should be enabled if you are planning on using netatalk as a file server.
AFPD_UAM_LISTSets 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_RUNEnables the cnid_metad daemon if set to "yes". This should be enabled if you are going to use the dbd CNID backend.
CNID_CONFIGConfiguration 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_NAMESets the machines' Appletalk name.
ATALK_ZONESets the machines' Appletalk zone.
ATALKD_RUNEnables the atalkd daemon if set to "yes". This should be enabled if you are planning on providing Appletalk services.
PAPD_RUNEnables the papd daemon if set to "yes". This should be enabled if you are planning on using netatalk as a print server.
ATALK_MAC_CHARSETSet the Mac client codepage, used by atalkd and papd to convert extended characters from the Unix to the Mac codepage.
ATALK_UNIX_CHARSETSet 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.
