It's possible that you don't have the appletalk protocol setup correctly
for some reason. The afpd process will run just fine and serve files over
an IP based connection even without appletalk. Check to see if the process
atalkd is running, and if the appletalk module is loaded into the kernel.
$ ps auxww | grep atalkd | grep -v grep
root 4051 0.0 0.0 2028 692 ? S Oct04 0:00 /usr/sbin/atalkd
$ lsmod | grep appletalk
appletalk 54356 20
