NAME

       avahi.hosts - avahi-daemon static host name file

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/avahi/hosts

DESCRIPTION

       /etc/avahi/hosts  is  a  file  which  may be used to define static host name to IP address
       mappings for multicast DNS. This is especially useful when publishing DNS-SD  services  on
       behalf of other hosts. See avahi.service(5) for more information.

       The  file  format  is similar to the one of /etc/hosts: on each line an IP address and the
       corresponding host name. The host names should be in FQDN form, i.e. with appended  .local
       suffix.
