    Re: How To: Install Netatalk (AFP) with Encrypted Authentication

    Hi all.
    Someone else have a umask problem?
    If I create a folder from my Mac on the Server I couldn't delete it.
    I changed the global umask to 002 and the share user is in the same group like the user the server is logged in.

    Some solutions?

    Thx Bru3

    You should explicitly select one to install.
    E: Package libcupsys2-dev has no installation candidate
    E: Failed to satisfy Build-Depends dependency for netatalk: libcupsys2-dev

    I am a complete beginner on Ubuntu so any help would be appreciated. Martin

    I used aptitude for that package.
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install libcups2-dev
    Everything else the same.
    Worked for me!

    Some time had passed and I wonder if the current Ubuntu (10.10) netatalk packages still don't support encrypted authentication as I would prefer not to use samba for now.
    Thornomad updated his blog related to this issue (http://blog.damontimm.com/how-to-ins...uthentication/), saying that following 9.04 release "the package in the repositories works with no extra steps":
    Updated 05.08.09: Just tested this with Jaunty (09.04) and the package in the repositories works with no extra steps. If you are using an older version of Ubuntu, however, you will want to follow these instructions. Tested with Intrepid Ibex (8.10) as well as: 6.06, 7.04, 7.10, and 8.06.
    Does this mean that current versions of netatalk provide a secure authentication mechanisms?

    I have tried to sniff the AFP login communication with wireshark and didn't find the textual representation of the password submitted.

    So is it now really secure? Where could one find such information?

    I am not sure how one every knows if something is "really" secure without reading the source code ... and, even then, who knows!

    Back when I started the thread the only way that I knew it was *insecure* was that my Mac warned me; it would say that the password was being sent in cleartext. After following the steps I outlined, that warning went away. But that's as far as I ever went to test its security. With the new version in the repositories that warning does not happen (and I believe from some of the bug logs and version notes you can find how they implemented the SSL).

    my experience of Netatalk and TimeMachine set up is here, particularly around resolving permission issues.

    I'm struggling to get usdots working with Leopard time machine, any advice? without usedots it works, encoding in hex :2e but with usedots it fails.
