avahi-publish-service(1)                              General Commands Manual                              avahi-publish-service(1)

       avahi-publish-service - Register an mDNS/DNS-SD service or host name or address mapping using the Avahi daemon

       avahi-publish -s [options] name service-type port [TXT data ...]

       avahi-publish-service [options] name service-type port [TXT data ...]

       avahi-publish -a [options] host name address

       avahi-publish-address [options] host name address

       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).

       -s | --service
              Register a service. avahi-publish-service is equivalent to avahi-publish -s.

       -a | --address
              Register an address/host name mapping. 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  (usu‐
              ally .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.
