Appletalk/Samba? - FreeBSD

Is it possible to set up a FreeBSD server to act as a gateway between an appletalk file server and a group of tcp/ip based windows PCs? What I'm trying to do is enable a group of PCs on the same physical network as the appletalk file server to be able to access files on that server. Windows XP, it would seem, does not support appletalk natively. Please CC any responses to me. Thank you. Timothy R. Simmons IT Technician Champion Realty Inc.

    Afaik, no, sorry. FreeBSD can act as an appletalk file server (by using
    the netatalk port and the appletalk kernel extension), but it is not able
    to mount remote filesystems via appletalk.

    Mac OS X and Darwin can do so; thus I think, Darwin wood be a good choice
    for you.

    Not exactly the same as you are trying to do here but I have in the past
    run both netatalk and samba on the same FBSD machine to share the same
    FS between apple and wins clients. Was pretty stable for a couple of
    years and then I didn't need to do that anymore so I uninstalled
    netatalk. Can you move the FS to a FBSD box ? If so that would be my
    suggestion.

    I have recently performed that exact operation, I had a lot of trouble with
    filenames. Created a common shared folder using samba and AppleTalk using
    netatalk. I did not spend much time configure the share. I was pushed for
    time and a little lazy.

    Unfortunately, I can't change the server. It's a server for our marketing
    department, and they like it the way it is.

    Are you using MacOS X or MacOS classic? MacOS X comes with SAMBA
    software native which means Macintosh and Windows clients can share
    Windows volumes natively. How does this sound?
