I don't have an OS9 box to play with at the moment, although they will be connecting. The only way I can be sure that the OSX box is using netatalk is that the Samba service has been stopped. I'm using the version of netatalk that comes with Slack 10, and when it starts you can see atalkd, nbprgstr, papd and afpd all start up. How can I tell my netatalk version number? I can see the Server appear in the Server Select window on the Mac, but it is when I try and connect to it I get the error. It's almost like the DNS for the name resolves to 127.0.0.1.
My atalkd.conf has the following in it
eth0 -seed -phase 2 -net 0-65534 -addr 1001.143
Is any of this helping? Thanks
