This VFS module is part of the samba(7) suite.
The vfs_netatalk VFS module dynamically hides .AppleDouble files, preventing spurious errors on some CIFS clients. .AppleDouble files may be created by historic implementations of AFP (Apple Filing Protocol) on servers.
Hide .AppleDouble files on the [data] share:
[data] m[blue]vfs objects = netatalkm
The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
