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.
