Publisher description for Avahi

Avahi program icon

Avahi is a system which facilitates service discovery on a local network. This means that you can plug your laptop or computer into a network and instantly be able to view other people who you can Chat with, find printers to print to or find files being shared. This kind of technology is already found in Apple MacOS X (branded Rendezvous, Bonjour and sometimes Zeroconf) and is very convenient. Avahi is mainly based on Lennart Poettering's flexmdns mDNS implementation for Linux which has been discontinued in favour of Avahi. Features * Licensed under LGPL * IPv4 and IPv6 support * D-Bus interface * Drops all privileges and runs as user "avahi" * chroot() support * Embeddable mDNS stack (i.e. mDNS stack available as Library) * Support for loading static service definitions from XML fragments * Interface to GLIBC NSS using nss-mdns * Ability to reflect mDNS traffic between multiple subnets * Ability to configure a unicast DNS server automatically from server data published on the LAN * Wide area DNS-SD support (read-only for now) * Compatibility libraries implementing a subset of the Howl and Apple Bonjour APIs
