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.
