       atalkd.conf - Configuration file used by atalkd(8) to determine the
       interfaces used by the master Netatalk daemon


       /etc/netatalk/atalkd.conf is the configuration file used by atalkd to
       configure the Appletalk interfaces and their behavior

       Any line not prefixed with # is interpreted. The configuration lines
       are composed like:

       Interface [ options ]

       The simplest case is to have either no atalkd.conf, or to have one that
       has no active lines. In this case, atalkd should auto-discover the
       local interfaces on the machine. Please note that you cannot split

       The interface is the network interface that this to work over, such as
       eth0 for Linux, or le0 for Sun.

       The possible options and their meanings are:

       -addr net.node
           Allows specification of the net and node numbers for this
           interface, specified in Appletalk numbering format (example: -addr

           Disables Appletalk routing. It is the opposite of -router.

       -net first[-last]
           Allows the available net to be set, optionally as a range.

       -noallmulti (linux only)
           On linux the interfaces, atalkd uses, are set to ALLMULTI by
           default caused by countless NICs having problems without being
           forced into this mode (some even don´t work with allmulti set). In
           case, you´ve a NIC known to support multicasts properly, you might
           want to set this option causing less packets to be processed

       -phase ( 1 | 2 )
           Specifies the Appletalk phase that this interface is to use (either
           Phase 1 or Phase 2).

           Like -seed, but allows single interface routing. It is the opposite
           of -dontroute.

           The seed option only works if you have multiple interfaces. It also
           causes all missing arguments to be automagically configured from
           the network.

       -zone zonename
           Specifies a specific zone that this interface should appear on
           (example: -zone "Parking Lot"). Please note that zones with spaces
           and other special characters should be enclosed in parentheses.
