I'm not experienced in the MacOS, but I would think that they had an
implimentation of NFS. But the mac group would be a better place to ask.
Additionally, the NET-2-HOWTO talks about supporting Appletalk. eg:
Or is this EtherTalk ? Either way, I think this will let you
shares files and printers with your Macintosh. See `Experimental
and Developmental modules.' below.
13.9. Appletalk support.
If you have some Apple machines on your network that you'd like your
linux machine to be able to share filesystems and printers with then
the linux appletalk support is what you are after.
The following information was supplied mostly by Cees de Groot
13.9.1. Building the kernel with Appletalk DDP support
Alan Cox has developed some experimental and working support for the
Apple Ethertalk specification. It is now a part of the later 1.2.*
revision kernels and the new linux 1.3.* revision kernels so to build
the kernel support for it you need only compile up a recent kernel,
make sure you select the following configuration option:
# cd /usr/src/linux
# make config
Appletalk DDP ? y
13.9.2. Building the Appletalk configuration tools and daemons.
You will need some additional software as the kernel support only
provides enough to do basic networking, none of the higher layer
protocols are implemented in the kernel.
Systems Unix Group at the University of Michigan and they have
produced a package called netatalk which provides software that
implements the Appletalk protocol stack and some useful utilities.
You can obtain it from:
University of Michigan
you will need at least version 1.3.3b2 as earlier versions did not
To build and install that package something like:
# cd /usr/src
# tar xvfz .../netatalk
- You may want to edit the `Makefile' at this point, specifically to change
the DESTDIR variable which defines where the files will be installed later.
The default of /usr/local/atalk is fairly safe.
- You should then just have to make the software. My `uname' program wasn't
in the /bin directory so I edited the Makefile to reflect this change too.
- as root:
# make install
You should then end up with a whole range of new commands to play
13.9.3. Configuring the Appletalk software.
The first thing you need to do to make it all work is add the contents
of the services.atalk file to your /etc/services file, just append it
to the end of the file.
The next step is to create the appletalk configuration files in the
/usr/local/atalk/etc directory (or wherever you installed the
The first file to create is the /usr/local/atalk/etc/Atalkd.conf file.
To start this file needs only one line that gives the name of the
network device that support the network that your Apple machines are
The Appletalk daemon program will add extra details after it is run.
