       avahi.service - avahi-daemon static service file


       /home/lennart/tmp/avahi/usr/local/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	multi‐
       ple   protocols.	  (i.e.	  a   printer	implementing   _ipp._tcp   and

       <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-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

       <service protocol="ipv4|ipv6|any"> Contains the service information for
       exactly one service type. Should contain one <type> and one <port> ele‐
       ment. 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.

       <subtype> Contains an additional DNS-SD service subtype for  this  ser‐
       vice. 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

       <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

       <port> The IP port number the service listens on.

       <txt-record> DNS-SD TXT record data.
