Avahi 0.6 (0.8)¶
avahi (Avahi’s embeddable mDNS/DNS-SD library)
Avahi is a fully LGPL framework for Multicast DNS Service Discovery. It allows programs to publish and discover services and hosts running on a local network with no specific configuration. For example you can plug into a network and instantly find printers to print to, files to look at and people to talk to.
You should not however use this library for non-embedded applications, you should use libavahi-client which interacts with the avahi daemon.
