Surprisingly, there's really nothing here about netatalk. Eudimorphodon mentions he was running it with a lot of other services, and... that's it. I figured it'd be pretty popular. But since there's no mention of it, I make this new thread to ensure, at least, that the regulars are aware of its existence (bah, I'm sure you all already are).
small victory (for me) here. I finally got it working with ssl on ubuntu — but I don't quite own it yet, just have it up and running. I can't believe how complex running appletalk is. It takes 4 daemons, and... its a dog, quite a bit slower than real AppleTalk, which has improved its speed a bit since 10.2.x (seems that way, I don't know for sure). Real AppleTalk, I can play a video file across my 54Mbps WLAN without stuttering, but with netatalk, it stutters on the 100BaseT LAN. It could be that toshiba drive in the tp A22m (yes, its a ThinkPad ubuntu server now) that's the bottleneck, I think its 4200rpm... but that still has to be almost 20MB/s or more sustained rate, right (its ATA/33 connection)? The stuttering video files are only 350mb, so I don' t know what the trouble is.
So... looking for bester alternatives...
I think there a net protocol that does a secure network mount on port 22 with sshd — what is that? Does it integrate well with OS X clients?
