afpd.conf - Configuration file used by afpd(8) to determine the setup of its file sharing
/etc/atalk//afpd.conf is the configuration file used by afpd to determine the behavior and
configuration of the different virtual file servers that it provides.
Any line not prefixed with # is interpreted. The configuration lines are composed like:
server name [ options ]
If a - is used instead of a server name, the default server is specified. Server names
must be quoted if they contain spaces.
The path name must be a fully qualified path name, or a path name using either the ~ shell
shorthand or any of the substitution variables, which are listed below.
The possible options and their meanings are:
Specifies path to AppleVolumes.default file (default is /etc/atalk//AppleVol-
Specifies the path to the code pages (default is /etc/atalk//nls).
Specifies path to AppleVolumes.system file (default is /etc/atalk//AppleVol-
Enables or disables reading of the users' individual volumes file entirely.
Enables or disables reading of the users' individual volumes file before processing
the global AppleVolumes.default file.
-uamlist [uams list]
Comma separated list of UAMs. (The default is
uams_guest.so,uams_passwd.so,uams_dhx_passwd.so). The most commonly used UAMs are:
uams_dhx_passwd.so or uams_dhx_pam.so - allows logins using Diffie-Hellman eXchange
uams_guest.so - allows guest logins
uams_passwd.so or uams_pam.so - allows logins with clear text passwords
uams_randum.so - allows Random Number and Two-Way Random Number Exchange for
authentication (requires /etc/atalk//afppaswd file)
Sets the default path for UAMs for this server (default is /etc/atalk//uams).
Sets the maximum number of failed logins, if supported by the UAM
Sets the path to the Randnum passwd file for this server (default is
Sets the minimum password length, if supported by the UAM
Enables or disables the ability of clients to save passwords locally
Enables or disables the ability of clients to change their passwords
Enables or disables AFP-over-Appletalk. If -proxy is specified, you must instead
use -uamlist "" to prevent DDP connections from working.
Enables or disables AFP-over-TCP
Allows users of a certain group to be seen as the superuser when they log in. This
option is disabled, by default.
-ddpaddr [ddp address]
Specifies the DDP address of the server. The default is to auto-assign an address
(0.0). This is only useful if you are running on a multihomed host.
Specifies a fully-qualified domain name, with an optional port. This is discarded
if the server cannot resolve it. This option is not honored by AppleShare clients
<= 3.8.3. This option is disabled by default.
-ipaddr [ip address]
Specifies the IP that the server should respond to (the default is the first IP
address of the system). This option also allows one machine to advertise TCP/IP for
-port [port number]
Allows a different TCP port to be specified for AFP-over-TCP. The default is 548.
-proxy Runs an AppleTalk proxy server for the specified AFP-over-TCP server. If the
address and port aren't given, then the first IP address of the system and port 548
will be used. If you don't want the proxy server to act as a DDP server as well,
set -uamlist "".
This specifoes the DSI server quantum. The minimum value is 1 MB. The maximum value
is 0xFFFFFFFFF. If you specify a value that is out of range, the default value will
be set (which is the minimum).
-noslp Do not register this server using the Service Location Protocol (if SLP support was
compiled in). This is useful if you are running multiple servers and want one to
be hidden, perhaps because it is advertised elsewhere.
Specifies the user that guests should use (default is "nobody"). The name should be
-icon Use the platform-specific icon
Sets a message to be displayed when clients logon to the server. The message should
Sets the tickle timeout interval (in seconds).
