AFP Share on my Linux Box

Okay, originally I was asking for help setting up an NFS share, although, I just learned that I could set up an AFP share, and considering all my families computers are Macs, I changed gears and decided this would be the best route, however, I'm running into problems.

In the AppleVolumes.default, I want to specify that any user can access this particular directory with read and write priviledges, so I figured if I didn't add any allow: or rwlist: options, it would just allow everyone access. I can easily mount the drive on my Dad's computer, however, I don't have write priviledges, and I can't see anything inside the directory either. This I found most puzzling, as I figured, if I didn't have read priviledges, I wouldn't have been able to mount it in the first place.

So, I'm assuming I just have something configged wrong, what options should I use to allow all rw access to the AFP share?

I had that exact same problem. Well, I still have it but I got past:

The error message operation not premitted comes from OSX _not_ from the nfs server denying access. I get this even as root in OSX. No idea what's going on but I figured it was some proprietary voodoo not worth getting into. After all it's OSX, not bsd...

Anyways, the server doesn't need to show up in the connect to Server dialog for you to be able to mount the volume. Just type


as server address and hit connect.
