NAME

       afp_signature.conf - Configuration file used by afpd(8) to specify
       server signature

DESCRIPTION

       /etc/netatalk/afp_signature.conf is the configuration file used by afpd
       to specify server signature automatically. The configuration lines are
       composed like:

       "server name" hexa-string

       The first field is server name. Server names must be quoted if they
       contain spaces. The second field is the hexadecimal string of 32
       characters for 16-bytes server signature.

       The leading spaces and tabs are ignored. Blank lines are ignored. The
       lines prefixed with # are ignored. The illegal lines are ignored.

           Note
           Server Signature is unique 16-bytes identifier used to prevent
           logging on to the same server twice.

           Netatalk 2.0 and earlier generated server signature by using
           gethostid(). There was a problem that another servers have the same
           signature because the hostid is not unique enough.

           Netatalk 2.1 generates the signature from random numbers and saves
           it into afp_signature.conf. When starting next time, it is read
           from this file.

           This file should not be thoughtlessly edited and be copied onto
           another server. If it wants to set the signature intentionally, use
           the option "-signature user:xxxx" in afpd.conf. In this case,
           afp_signature.conf is not used.
