Netatalk is an implementation of the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP),
for offering file service (mainly) to macOS clients.
Compared to the Windows-native SMB protocol
(which is also supported on macOS),
the Macintosh-native AFP protocol is accessible from a different network,
can be simpler to setup and faster for some operations
(e.g. server-to-server copying),
and some features (e.g. the backup service Time Machine)
may work more reliably than over SMB.
This package contains all daemon and utility programs
as well as Netatalk's libraries.
