Apple Filing Protocol Server Detection

(C) 2001-2016 James W. Abendschan <> (GPL)

Synopsis :

An Apple file sharing service is listening on the remote port.

Description :

The remote service understands the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) and
responds to a 'FPGetSrvrInfo' ('DSIGetStatus') request with
information about itself.

AFP is used to offer file services for Mac OS X as well as the older
Mac OS. In the past, it has also been known as 'AppleTalk Filing
Protocol' and 'AppleShare'.
