PAM for version 3.0

Netatalk will complain that, while it supports PAM authentication, it can't automatically set up PAM for you on Solaris systems. You'll need to do this manually.

Howto needed: (LDAP/ Actve Directory support for netatalk3 - Interoperability with CIFS AD support?)

Bonjour Avahi/ Zeroconfig for version V.3

Howto needed


Configurations for version 2.x and version >= 3.0 are quite different. Please refer to the netatalk website for more information:


All configuration now happens in this one file: /usr/local/etc/afp.conf:
This file must end with a newline or netatalk service would not start (maintenance mode)
