Here’s how to install AFP (Netatalk) on Ubuntu Linux with SSL for encrypted logins.

[code lang=”bash”]apt-get install cracklib2-dev libssl-dev devscripts
apt-get source netatalk
apt-get build-dep netatalk
cd netatalk-*
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=ssl sudo dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc
dpkg -i ../netatalk_*.deb[/code]

Now you should prevent it from being upgraded with either:

[code lang=”bash”]echo “netatalk hold” | sudo dpkg –set-selections[/code]


[code lang=”bash”]apt-get install wajig
wajig hold netatalk[/code]

Don’t forget to edit your shared directories:

[code lang=”bash”]nano /etc/netatalk/AppleVolumes.default[/code]

You might also want to advertise the server with Bonjour. I followed these instructions.
