If netatalk has been configured with --enable-debian, it is not /etc/netatalk/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:
- Sets the id of the guest user to a local user on the system.
- Sets the maximum number of clients that can simultaneously connect to the server.
- Enables the afpd daemon if set to "yes". This should be enabled if you are planning on using netatalk as a file server.
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"
- Enables the cnid_metad daemon if set to "yes". This should be enabled if you are going to use the dbd CNID backend.
- Configuration options for cnid_metad. See: cnid_metad(8)
- "yes" will set netatalk to initialize in the background, and "no" will cause normal initialization.
- Sets the machines' Appletalk name.
- Sets the machines' Appletalk zone.
- Enables the atalkd daemon if set to "yes". This should be enabled if you are planning on providing Appletalk services.
- Enables the papd daemon if set to "yes". This should be enabled if you are planning on using netatalk as a print server.
- Set the Mac client codepage, used by atalkd and papd to convert extended characters from the Unix to the Mac codepage.
- 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.
