This post will only interest you if you’re using a Mac. AFP (Apple Filing Protocol) is the protocol Macs use to share files over a network. This post will guide you through setting this up using Netatalk. It will also cover setting it up to be easily accessible without the IP address.
To install Netatalk, simply use:
apt-get update sudo apt-get install netatalk
You should now be able to access your Raspberry Pi from the Finder side bar and under Network (shift + command + k).
To add more folders do:
sudo /etc/init.d/netatalk stop sudo nano /etc/netatalk/AppleVolumes.default
# By default all users have access to their home directories. ~/ "Home Directory" ~/.node-red "Node-Red"
