Register an mDNS/DNS-SD service or host name/address mapping using the Avahi daemon. The daemon is not the standard Avahi daemon but a proxy to a Bonjour 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).
-s | --service
  Register a service. avahi-publish-service is equivalent to avahi-publish -s.
-a | --address
  Register an address/host name maping. avahi-publish-address is equivalent to avahi-publish -a.
-v | --verbose
  Enable verbose mode.
-H | --host= HOSTNAME
  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.
-d | --domain= DOMAIN
  Publish the service in the specified domain. If omitted the Avahi daemon will publish it in its default domain (usually .local).
--subtype= SUBTYPE
  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.
-f | --no-fail
  Don’t fail if the daemon is not found running. Instead, wait until it appears. If it disconnects, try to reconnect.
-h | --help
  Show help
-V | --version
  Show version information.
