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 con-
       tain one <type> and one <port> element. Optionally it may contain one <domain-name>, one <host-name>, any  num-
       ber  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.
