Description : File server for Macintosh and Apple II clients
Netatalk 2 is a file server for Macintosh and Apple II clients which
implements the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) with support for TCP (DSI)
and AppleTalk (DDP) networking layers.
It also supplies a PAP compliant printer server (papd), a time server
(timelord), and an Apple II netboot server (a2boot). In addition, a
suite of tools for classic Mac file formats, AppleTalk networking, and
PostScript printing is included.
Unlike Netatalk 3, it retains the AppleTalk network layer, which allows
it to server as a bridge between older Mac and Apple II clients, with
the latest macOS clients.
I intend to leverage the existing pkg-netatalk-devel team for
maintaining the package, including volunteering my own effort.
