avahi.service(5)              File Formats Manual             avahi.service(5)



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  defi-
       nitions  which  share the same name. This is useful for publishing ser-
       vice data for services which  implement  multiple  protocols.  (i.e.  a
       printer implementing _ipp._tcp and _printer._tcp)

XML TAGS
       <&lt;service-group>&gt; The document tag of avahi service files. Should contain
       one <&lt;name>&gt; and one or more <&lt;service>&gt; elements.

       <&lt;name replace-wildcards="yes|no">&gt; The service  name.  If  replace-wild-
       cards  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".

       <&lt;service protocol="ipv4|ipv6|any">&gt; Contains the service information for
       exactly one service type. Should contain one <&lt;type>&gt; and one <&lt;port>&gt; ele-
       ment. Optionally it may contain one <&lt;domain-name>&gt;, one <&lt;host-name>&gt;, any
       number  of  <&lt;subtype>&gt;  and  any  number  of  <&lt;txt-record>&gt; 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.

       <&lt;type>&gt;  Contains  the  DNS-SD  service  type  for  this  service.  e.g.
       "_http._tcp".

       <&lt;subtype>&gt;  Contains  an additional DNS-SD service subtype for this ser-
       vice. e.g. "_anon._sub._ftp._tcp".

       <&lt;domain-name>&gt; The domain name this service  should  be  registered.  If
       omited  defaults  to  the default domain of the avahi daemon. (probably
       .local)

       <&lt;host-name>&gt; 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  <&lt;domain-name>&gt;.  See
       avahi.hosts(5) for more information how to publish additional host name
       mappings.

       <&lt;port>&gt; The IP port number the service listens on.

       <&lt;txt-record>&gt; DNS-SD TXT record data.
