<p>When calling in service registration mode, specify a DNS-SD
service name (e.g. "Lennart's Files"), a service type
(e.g. _http._tcp) and an IP port number for the service,
optionally followed by any number of TXT record strings on the

mode specify a fully qualified host name and an address (IPv4 or
