<manpage name="avahi.service" section="5" desc="avahi-daemon static service file">
<description> <p><file>@servicedir@/*.service</file> 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 multiple protocols. (i.e. a printer
implementing _ipp._tcp and _printer._tcp)</p> </description>
<section name="XML Tags">
<p><opt>&lt;service-group&gt;</opt> The document tag of avahi
service files. Should contain one <opt>&lt;name&gt;</opt> and one or more
<opt>&lt;service&gt;</opt> elements.</p>
<p><opt>&lt;name replace-wildcards="yes|no"&gt;</opt> The
service name. If <opt>replace-wildcards</opt> 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 <opt>replace-wildcards</opt> is not
specified, defaults to "no".</p>
<p><opt>&lt;service protocol="ipv4|ipv6|any"&gt;</opt>
Contains the service information for exactly one service
type. Should contain one <opt>&lt;type&gt;</opt> and one
<opt>&lt;port&gt;</opt> element. Optionally it may contain one
<opt>&lt;domain-name&gt;</opt>, one
<opt>&lt;host-name&gt;</opt>, any number of
<opt>&lt;subtype&gt;</opt> and any number of
<opt>&lt;txt-record&gt;</opt> elements. The attribute
<opt>protocol</opt> specifies the protocol to advertise the
service on. If <opt>any</opt> is used (which is the default),
the service will be advertised on both IPv4 and IPv6.</p>
<p><opt>&lt;type&gt;</opt> Contains the DNS-SD service type for this service. e.g. "_http._tcp".</p>
<p><opt>&lt;subtype&gt;</opt> Contains an additional DNS-SD service subtype for this service. e.g. "_anon._sub._ftp._tcp".</p>
<p><opt>&lt;domain-name&gt;</opt> The domain name this service
should be registered. If omited defaults to the default domain
of the avahi daemon. (probably .local)</p>
<p><opt>&lt;host-name&gt;</opt> 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
<opt>&lt;domain-name&gt;</opt>. See <manref name="avahi.hosts"
section="5"/> for more information how to publish additional
host name mappings.</p>
<p><opt>&lt;port&gt;</opt> The IP port number the service listens on.</p>
<p><opt>&lt;txt-record&gt;</opt> DNS-SD TXT record data.</p>
