    Hello

    I want to know if anybody has ever been able to make successful Time Machine backups with Netatalk over wifi. I have tried several configurations (hardware and software) and have always failed verification after about a month.

    If yes, can you please list the version of Netatalk you are using?

    I created my own Time Capsule using Netatalk 3.1.10, a Raspberry Pi B (512MB), and a 3TB external Seagate HD. So far it's run well.

    Via Wifi? How long have you had it running for?

    Yep, via WiFi. It's been running at least three months now.

    If you make backups in a non-standard way, may I suggest you verify that the backup actually works?
