Using Apple File Protocol in Open Suse

by tech_rules / December 29, 2008 9:12 AM PST

I was wondering if there was anyway that open suse could use AFP to share files with my macs. And if a fresh install of open suse can't is there any programs which I could download to make it possible.

Thanks in Advance

[Note: I am using Open Suse 11.1]

Look for netatalk in the repositories. Install it, set it up, set up networking.

In reply to: Netatalk

I researched it a bit more and I find a few websites which say that the current version of netatalk didn't work with Leopard (something to do with encryption) I also read a website that said it didn't work with the 10.5.6 update. Pease help me? I was also wondering if netatalk did work would it show up in the finder.

netatalk + avahi works fine...

netatalk did work perfectly for me when I followed some really good instructions at the following linked website:

I am running an Ubuntu box, so maybe it does better? Also maybe there are issues with certain versions of netatalk, but I had absolutely 0, which was amazing after spending months on NFS and SMB which are horse **** to configure and connect to. Only downside to AFP is that windows cannot connect to it.

Netatalk It will not automatically show in finder of mac clients. You have to setup the bonjour server called Avahi, which is also perfectly explained in above link.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
