Share Files Between Mac OSX and Raspberry Pi

We are gonna use Netatalk so the pi.local will appear in Finder on the Mac.

Step 1: Installation

Install Netatalk:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install netatalk

Step 2: Configuration

Stop the service:

sudo /etc/init.d/netatalk stop

Open the configuration file:

sudo nano /etc/netatalk/AppleVolumes.default

You can edit the mount folder if you wish or leave the default value:
~/ “Home Directory”

Start the service again:

sudo /etc/init.d/netatalk start

Step 3: Open the Finder

Open the Finder on your mac and you will be able to see the raspberry pi with a few seconds in the Navigation Pane.
Use the button “Connect As…” at the right top of the Finder.
