connecting to afp


I have been searching a lot thru google, some documentation about connecting to AFP (from Linux to Mac OS X) over IP (afp:// But nothing found. There is only few Articles on enabling afp sharing on Linux, not about connecting to Mac using Linux. Strange.
But I think there should be something, some application that can do that.

I'm using Slackware (10.2), netatalk and other similar applications are installed.

Thanks in advance

Hi j0hnd0e

As far as i know the mount command (under linux what ever the distribution) doesn't support the AFP protocol, so you can try to use NETATALK here:

Or change the used protocol and switch to FTP or SMB (that would be my choice instead of using "netatalk")
