NAME
       avahi-browse - Browse for mDNS/DNS-SD services using the Avahi daemon

SYNOPSIS
       avahi-browse [options] service-type

       avahi-browse [options] --all

       avahi-browse [options] --browse-domains

       avahi-browse [options] --dump-db

       avahi-browse-domains [options]

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  seperated  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.
