afpcmd - Transfer files over the networking using the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP)
afpcmd [-r [afp url]
afpcmd is a command-line tool to help transfer files to and from a server using AFP. This is typically either Netatalk or Mac OS or Mac OS X. This can be done as a non-root user. It offers either an interactive command-line (like a traditional FTP client) or for batch retrievals. Do not confuse this with the FUSE mounting tools (mount_afp, afpfsd, afp_client), which offer the ability to mount an entire filesystem.
-r sets the recursive flag. afp url uses the standard AFP URL format.
AFP version support
Look at the afpfs-ng documentation for more information on specific AFP version compatibility information.
Batch file transfers can be done in one of two ways: afpcmd -r [afp url to directory] This does a recursive transfer of all subdirectories and files locally. afpcmd [afp url to file] This transfers just the file locally. After either of these is finished, the command exits.
If a URL is provided on the command line, afpcmd connects and enters the volume and directory specified. Standard readline keystrokes are enabled. Command line competion (using tab) and history (using up and down arrows) is provided. Local filename completion is enabled. Most common commands connect <afp URL>: Connect to server, change to volume and directory cd: Change directories on the server get <filename>: retrieve file get -r <directory>: Recursively retrieve the directory put <filename>: Upload file quit: Quit Conect/disconnect commands disconnect: Disconnect from current server passwd: Prompts for a new password without showing on screen user <user>: Set the user passwd: change the password on the server. Does not work. Remote directory commands pwd: Show current directory on server mkdir <directory>: create new directory rmdir <directory: remove directory ls or dir: show files in current directory Remote file commands mv or rename old_file new_file: Rename <old file> to <new file> touch <filename>: Create a blank file view <filename>: Show file chmod: <file> <mode>: Change the mode of a file on the server delete of rm: <file>: Remove file from the server Status commands status: Show status of the connection and details. For debugging. df: Show the disk size and available blocks. Local commands lpwd: Show current local lcd: Change local directory Other commands help or ?: show help testafp: various tests for developers
A typical usage of afpcmd is: afpcmd afp://username:password@servername/volume The complete syntax of a URL is: afp://username;AUTH=authtype:password@server:port/volume/path If a password of "-" is provided, the user is prompted for a password.
