avahi-browse-domains [\fIoptions\fB]
Browse for mDNS/DNS-SD network services and browsing domains using the Avahi daemon.
Specify a DNS-SD service type (e.g. _http._tcp) to browse for on the command line, or \fB-a\f1 to browse for all available service types. Items that appear on the network are prefixed with "+", items that disappear are prefixed with "-". If \fB--resolve\f1 is passed items that are resolved are prefixed with "=".
\fB-a | --all\f1
Browse for all service types registered on the LAN, not just the one specified on the command line.
\fB-D | --browse-domains\f1
Browse for browsing domains instead for services. avahi-browse-domains is equivalent to avahi-browse --browse-domains
\fB-d | --domain=\f1 \fIDOMAIN\f1
Browse in the specified domain. If omitted avahi-browse will browse in the default browsing domain (usually .local)
\fB-v | --verbose\f1
Enable verbose mode.
\fB-t | --terminate\f1
Terminate after dumping a more or less complete list.
\fB-c | --cache\f1

\fB-l | --ignore-local\f1
Ignore local services, show only remote services.
\fB-r | --resolve\f1
Automatically resolve services found.
\fB-f | --no-fail\f1
Don't fail if the daemon is not found running. Instead, wait until it appears. If it disconnects, try to reconnect.
\fB-p | --parsable\f1
Make output easily parsable for usage in scripts. If enabled fields are separated by semicolons (;), service names are escaped. It is recommended to combine this with \fB--no-db-lookup\f1.
\fB-k | --no-db-lookup\f1
Don't lookup services types in service type database.
\fB-b | --dump-db\f1
Dump the service type database (may be combined with -k)
