Just make sure you use the 2.x branch; they dumped AppleTalk in 3.x.  My Netatalk 2.6 server can talk to everything from my Mac SE (with Ethernet, running System 6 and 7) to my 2015 MacBook Pro running 10.11.

Just be careful moving between servers, preserving the resource forks between machines can be a royal pain. Also be careful sharing files between Samba and Netatalk, as the metadata doesn't always play nice together.
