Alternatives ” There are two free implementations of AppleTalk for several kinds of UNIX machines and several more commercial ones. These products allow you to run file services and print services natively to Macintosh users, with no additional support required on the Macintosh. The two free implementations are Netatalk, [3] and CAP. [4] What Samba offers MS Windows users, these packages offer to Macs. For more info on these packages, Samba, and Linux (and other UNIX-based systems), see http://www.eats.com/linux_mac_win.html.
