Appletalk Transfer Agent

1. The ATA service receives the packet from the client.

2. ATA extracts the RPC from the Appletalk packet and sends the request to the VINES IP stack on the server.

3. VINES IP processes the request, and sends the response to ATA.

4. ATA encapsulates the response in an AppleTalk packet and returns the results of the RPC to the Macintosh client.
