Register an mDNS/DNS-SD service or host name/address mapping using the Avahi daemon.
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 command line. When calling in address/host name registration mode specify a fully qualified host name and an address (IPv4 or IPv6).
\fB-s | --service\f1
Register a service. avahi-publish-service is equivalent to avahi-publish -s.
\fB-a | --address\f1
Register an address/host name mapping. avahi-publish-address is equivalent to avahi-publish -a.
\fB-v | --verbose\f1
Enable verbose mode.
\fB-H | --host=\f1 \fIHOSTNAME\f1
Specify a host name for this service, in case it doesn't reside on the local host. This host name needs to be fully qualified and resolvable using mDNS or unicast DNS.
\fB-d | --domain=\f1 \fIDOMAIN\f1
Publish the service in the specified domain. If omitted the Avahi daemon will publish it in its default domain (usually .local).
\fB--subtype=\f1 \fISUBTYPE\f1
Register the service with an additional subtype in addition to the main type. DNS-SD subtypes have the form _anon._sub._ftp._tcp, where _anon is the identifier of the subtype and _ftp._tcp is the main type. You may pass this option multiple times to register the service with multiple subtypes.
\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-h | --help\f1
Show help
\fB-V | --version\f1
Show version information.
