       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 (usually

       --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.
