AppleTalk Filing Protocol 2.1 and 2.2 [PDF]

Specifically, this document describes new commands introduced with AFP 2.1, as well as new bit definitions and attributes for several AFP commands.

User Authentication Modules
This document describes how applications can implement client and server user authentication modules (UAMs) that allow AppleShare clients to use third-party schemes, such as Kerberos, Network Information Service (NIS), or Novell Directory Services (NDS), to authenticate themselves to an AppleShare server. For AppleShare 6.2, server UAMs can provide an initialization routine that is called after the AppleShare registry becomes available and before the server is available for general use.
