AFP is a network file access protocol (similar in concept to NFS or SMB).
The AFP protocol will run on top of Appletalk or TCP/IP.  It even
runs tunneled via SSH for secure data transport.

Appletalk is a network transport protocol (like TCP/IP or NetBios) that
originated on Apple's non-ethernet RS422 network (called LocalTalk)
in the early 80s.  It was later moved to ethernet-based transport.
Like NetBios, AppleTalk is being deprecated in preference to Redezvous + TCP/IP.

Mac OS X is a Berkeley Unix derivative and as such, its network stack
is heavily built up on Berkeley sockets and TCP/IP.  Appletalk protocols are
emulated - badly.   The Mac OS X Appletalk stack seems to be especially
problematic when used with Microsoft's Appletalk stack in Services for Macintosh.
