Netatalk versions 2.2.7 through 2.2.10 had the non-standard behavior of not rebroadcasting routing information originating from other subnets. This made certain Asanté or Dayna LocalTalk hardware bridges able to coexist with netatalk, with the drawback that subnets behind other routers aren’t visible to the netatalk clients.

Netatalk 2.3.0 restores the correct behavior as per the AppleTalk specification. If you want to emulate the previous non-standard behavior, you can start atalkd with the newly introduced -q parameter.
