NAME
       avahi.service - avahi-daemon static service file

SYNOPSIS
       /home/lennart/tmp/avahi/usr/local/etc/avahi/services/*.service

DESCRIPTION
       /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
       _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-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".

       <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	attri-
       bute  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  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
       .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.
