What does samba or nfs have to do with appleshare?
The Linux-Server is already seen from the Apple/Mac. I want it vice versa.

In the meantime I have found a tool which makes it possible to mount
a shared folder from a remote apple macintosh under linux, but
the software is too old and does not compile. It is called afpfs.
Perhaps does someone know where to find the newest version?
