afp_signature.conf - Configuration file used by afpd(8) to specify server
/etc/netatalk/afp_signature.conf is the configuration file used by afpd
to specify server signature automagically. The configuration lines are
"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.
Example. afp_signature.conf three servers on one netatalk
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.
Current netatalk 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.
