Fedora 14 - Enable Apple File Sharing for OSX clients

Submitted by Janak on Sun, 01/23/2011 - 22:40

So, I had a spare NC10 Netbook which made for a perfect candidate to get Fedora 14 install and turned into a headless NAS + Torrent box. All perfect, but I wanted to share the files from Fedora with my MacBook. It seems there are loads of complete and complex tutorials out there, so here is my compact set of notes from my own install.

Install Netatalk

yum install netatalk
yum install avahi

Install AFPD avahi service

nano /etc/avahi/services/afpd.service

%h Xserve




Start Services

chkconfig netatalk on
/etc/init.d/netatalk start
/etc/init.d/avahi-daemon restart
