AFP_SIGNATURE.CONF(5)		    3.1.12		 AFP_SIGNATURE.CONF(5)

NAME
       afp_signature.conf - Configuration file used by afpd(8) to specify
       server signature

DESCRIPTION
       /var/netatalk/afp_signature.conf	is the configuration file used by afpd
       to specify server signature automagically. The configuration lines are
       composed	like:

       "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.

	   Note
	   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 =" in afp.conf. In this case,
	   afp_signature.conf is not used.

EXAMPLES
       Example.	afp_signature.conf

	   "My Server" 74A0BB94EC8C13988B2E75042347E528
