Successfully file sharing w/Raspberry Pi configured as Time Machine

I followed the directions here - [www.jannikarndt.de]

but found that it needed some default netatalk config. Config file is available at /etc/netatalk/afp.conf - just needed to uncomment and modify some defaults.

I'd like to do a speed test but it seems I don't have a gigabit adapter on hand. Seems reasonably speedy.

I'll report back after a week of use. Also need to create a user specifically for this use. Not sure who's idea of fun is setting up users and permissions. I'll do it later....will later ever come?

I have a 4 with 4GB of RAM. As far as I understand, the 4 is significantly faster at network transfers to hard drives.

Now if only those 7.68TB SSDs would drop down to say $100 or so...
