NAME

       avahi.service - avahi-daemon static service file

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/avahi/services/*.service

DESCRIPTION

       /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)

XML TAGS

       <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
       "no".

       <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.
       "_http._tcp".

       <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
       .local)

       <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
       mappings.

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

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