DESCRIPTION

       Browse for mDNS/DNS-SD network services and browsing domains using the Avahi daemon.

OPTIONS

       Specify  a  DNS-SD service type (e.g. _http._tcp) to browse for on the command line, or -a
       to browse for all available service types. Items that appear on the network  are  prefixed
       with  "+",  items  that disappear are prefixed with "-". If --resolve is passed items that
       are resolved are prefixed with "=".

       -a | --all
              Browse for all service types registered on the LAN, not just the one  specified  on
              the command line.

       -D | --browse-domains
              Browse   for   browsing  domains  instead  for  services.  avahi-browse-domains  is
              equivalent to avahi-browse --browse-domains

       -d | --domain= DOMAIN
              Browse in the specified domain. If omitted avahi-browse will browse in the  default
              browsing domain (usually .local)

       -v | --verbose
              Enable verbose mode.

       -t | --terminate
              Terminate after dumping a more or less complete list.

       -c | --cache
              Terminate after dumping all entries available in the cache.

       -l | --ignore-local
              Ignore local services, show only remote services.

       -r | --resolve
              Automatically resolve services found.

       -f | --no-fail
              Don't  fail  if the daemon is not found running. Instead, wait until it appears. If
              it disconnects, try to reconnect.

       -p | --parsable
              Make output easily parsable for usage in scripts. If enabled fields  are  separated
              by  semicolons  (;),  service  names are escaped. It is recommended to combine this
              with --no-db-lookup.

       -k | --no-db-lookup
              Don't lookup services types in service type database.

       -b | --dump-db
              Dump the service type database (may be combined with -k)

       -h | --help
              Show help.

       -V | --version
              Show version information.
