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

SYNOPSIS
       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

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       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  (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 sub-
              type 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.
