NAME

       avahi-publish-service  -  Register  an mDNS/DNS-SD service or host name or address mapping
       using the Avahi daemon

SYNOPSIS

       avahi-publish -s [options] name service-type port [TXT data ...]

       avahi-publish-service [options] name service-type port [TXT data ...]

       avahi-publish -a [options] host name address

       avahi-publish-address [options] host name address

DESCRIPTION

       Register an mDNS/DNS-SD service or host name/address mapping using the Avahi daemon.

OPTIONS

       When calling in service registration mode, specify a DNS-SD service name (e.g.  "Lennart's
       Files"),  a  service  type  (e.g.  _http._tcp)  and  an  IP  port  number for the service,
       optionally followed by any number of TXT record strings on the command line. When  calling
       in  address/host name registration mode specify a fully qualified host name and an address
       (IPv4 or IPv6).

       -s | --service
              Register a service. avahi-publish-service is equivalent to avahi-publish -s.

       -a | --address
              Register an address/host  name  mapping.  avahi-publish-address  is  equivalent  to
              avahi-publish -a.

       -v | --verbose
              Enable verbose mode.

       -H | --host= HOSTNAME
              Specify  a host name for this service, in case it doesn't reside on the local host.
              This host name needs to be fully qualified and resolvable  using  mDNS  or  unicast
              DNS.

       -d | --domain= DOMAIN
              Publish  the  service  in  the  specified  domain. If omitted the Avahi daemon will
              publish it in its default domain (usually .local).

       --subtype= SUBTYPE
              Register the service with an additional subtype in addition to the main type.  DNS-
              SD  subtypes  have  the form _anon._sub._ftp._tcp, where _anon is the identifier of
              the subtype and _ftp._tcp is the main type. You may pass this option multiple times
              to register the service with multiple subtypes.

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

       -h | --help
              Show help

       -V | --version
              Show version information.
