Apple Filing (AFP) plugin finished

This weekend i’ve implemented the Apple Filing (AFP) plugin for OpenMediaVault. Due to the fact that i do not have a MAC i am not able to test it. Hopefully it does not have too much bugs 🙂 I’ve reduced the number of options in the share configuration page to a minimum number, but it can be enhanced if necessary (feature request). TimeMachine support has been added based on howtos and docs i’ve found in the net.

Please note the following taken from the official Debian netatalk package:

OpenSSL support is currently disabled, because of licensing issues: The Free
Software Foundation and Debian consider the GNU General Public License (GPL)
under which Netatalk is licensed to be incompatible with the OpenSSL license.

Thanks to gcrypt support (introduced in netatalk 2.0.4beta2) the DHX2 UAM provides encrypted access for MacOS X 10.4 and newer, but older releases of MacOS X and MacOS Classic can only connect unencrypted as both of the UAMs DHX and Randnum requires OpenSSL support.

You can build locally with OpenSSL using the following commands:

sudo aptitude install devscripts
sudo aptitude build-dep netatalk
apt-get source netatalk
cd netatalk-*
dch -l +ssl -D local –force-distribution “Local build with OpenSSL.”
sudo debi

You my need additional build-dependencies not resolved automatically.

Alternatively you can subscribe to unofficial(!) precompiled packages by adding the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb $DIST netatalk
