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
       <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
       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 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.
