This article by khubla.com shows us how to create Time Machine backups in FreeBSD 10 through netatalk3.
I usually work on a Macbook, and I use keyless ssh with a cron job to do nightly backups. It works very well. However, I decided to try backups with Time Machine, using my FreeBSD-10 server as the host.
The first step is to install netatalk3, and nss_mdnspkg install netatalk3 pkg install nss_mdns

We sat down with Josh and Matt from iXsystems while at the show. Matt and Josh unloaded a lot of information about FreeNAS and where the project is headed. It sounds like the big push for the second half of this year revolves around making the product more user friendly. A new wizard system should tame the complicated but powerful storage specific operating system.
The FreeNAS developers also also pitched us TrueNAS, not that it was difficult to make us listen. iXsystems will soon offer TrueNAS in an all flash array, something we’re excited about. The current builds of TrueNAS use hybrid storage pools with flash acceleration.
The developers of FreeNAS have released version 220.127.116.11.
Well, we said 18.104.22.168 would be the last in the 9.2.1.x series, but CVE-2014-3560 (a possible remote Samba exploit) forced us to change those plans. Come and get it from here, as usual!
While we were at it, we also added a few small performance improvements and brought over a small feature from 9.3, namely the ability to do replication on a direct link without encryption, potentially speeding up replication anywhere from 3-4X (especially over 10GbE). This is generally most useful when doing initial replication to a backup box, while they are co-located together, after which normal encryption can be used in sending the deltas.
Appended are the release notes for 22.214.171.124. We encourage all existing 9.2.1.x users to upgrade. Thanks!
