avahi.service - avahi-daemon static service file




   /etc/avahi/services/*.service  are XML fragments containing static DNS-
   SD service data.  Every  service  file  can  contain  multiple  service
   definitions  which  share  the same name. This is useful for publishing
   service data for services which implement multiple protocols.  (i.e.  a
   printer implementing _ipp._tcp and _printer._tcp)


   <service-group> The document tag of avahi service files. Should contain
   one <name> and one or more <service> elements.

   <name  replace-wildcards="yes|no">  The  service  name.   If   replace-
   wildcards  is  "yes", any occurence of the string "%h" will be replaced
   by the local host name. This can be used for service names like "Remote
   Terminal  on  %h".  If  replace-wildcards is not specified, defaults to

   <service protocol="ipv4|ipv6|any"> Contains the service information for
   exactly  one  service  type.  Should  contain one <type> and one <port>
   element. Optionally it may contain one <domain-name>, one  <host-name>,
   any  number  of  <subtype> and any number of <txt-record> elements. The
   attribute protocol specifies the protocol to advertise the service  on.
   If  any  is used (which is the default), the service will be advertised
   on both IPv4 and IPv6.

   <type>  Contains  the  DNS-SD  service  type  for  this  service.  e.g.

   <subtype>  Contains  an  additional  DNS-SD  service  subtype  for this
   service. e.g. "_anon._sub._ftp._tcp".

   <domain-name> The domain name this service  should  be  registered.  If
   omited  defaults  to  the default domain of the avahi daemon. (probably

   <host-name> The host name of the host that provides this service.  This
   should be a host that is resolvable by multicast or unicast DNS. Please
   note that you need to specify  a  fully-qualified  domain  name  (FQDN)
   here,  i.e.  .local  is  not appended implicitly! The host name doesn't
   need  to  be  part  of  the  domain  specified  in  <domain-name>.  See
   avahi.hosts(5) for more information how to publish additional host name

   <port> The IP port number the service listens on.

   <txt-record> DNS-SD TXT record data.
