NAME
avahi-autoipd - IPv4LL network address configuration daemon SYNOPSIS
avahi-autoipd [options] interface avahi-autoipd --kill interface avahi-autoipd --refresh interface avahi-autoipd --check interface DESCRIPTION
avahi-autoipd implements IPv4LL, "Dynamic Configuration of IPv4 Link-Local Addresses" (IETF RFC3927), a protocol for automatic IP address configuration from the link-local 169.254.0.0/16 range without the need for a central server. It is primarily intended to be used in ad-hoc networks which lack a DHCP server. IPv4LL is part of the Zeroconf stack. avahi-autoipd can be used as stand-alone address allocator or as plugin for a DHCP client such as ISC's dhclient, where it can be used as fallback solution if no DHCP server is found. To allow communication between hosts that have only an IPv4LL address assigned and hosts that only have a routable IP address assigned you may add the following routes to both network configurations: route add -net 169.254.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 dev eth0 metric 99 route add default dev eth0 metric 99 See http://developer.apple.com/qa/qa2004/qa1357.html for more information. OPTIONS
-D | --daemonize Daemonize after startup. Implies --syslog. -k | --kill Kill an already running avahi-autoipd on the specified network interface. (Equivalent to sending a SIGTERM) -r | --refresh Tell an already running avahi-autoipd to re-announce the acquired IP address on the specified network interface. (Equivalent to sending a SIGHUP) -c | --check Return 0 as return code if avahi-autoipd is already running for the specified network interface. -s | --syslog Log to syslog instead of STDERR. Implied by --daemonize. --debug Enable verbose mode. --no-drop-root Don't drop root privileges after startup. We recommend not to use this option. --no-chroot Don't chroot(2) the daemon. This option is only available when compiled with chroot() support. -S | --start= Try to acquire the specified IP address, which must be from the IPv4LL range 169.254.0.0/16. -w | --wait Wait until a IP address has been successfully acquired before detaching. Only valid in combination with --daemonize. --force-bind Acquire an IPv4LL address, even if a routable address has been configured on the interface. --no-proc-title Don't change the process name while running. Unless this option is specified avahi-autoipd will reflect its current state and the IP address in the process title. -h | --help Show help. -v | --version Show version information. FILES
/home/lennart/tmp/avahi/etc/avahi/avahi-autoipd.action: the script to run when an IP address as been acquired or is lost. SIGNALS
SIGINT, SIGTERM: avahi-autoipd will shutdown. (Same as --kill) SIGHUP: avahi-autoipd will re-announce the acquired IP address. (Same as --refresh) AUTHORS

NAME
avahi-daemon - The Avahi mDNS/DNS-SD daemon SYNOPSIS
avahi-daemon [options] avahi-daemon --kill avahi-daemon --reload avahi-daemon --check DESCRIPTION
The Avahi mDNS/DNS-SD daemon implements Apple's Zeroconf architecture (also known as "Rendezvous" or "Bonjour"). The daemon registers local IP addresses and static services using mDNS/DNS-SD and provides two IPC APIs for local programs to make use of the mDNS record cache the avahi-daemon maintains. First there is the so called "simple protocol" which is used exclusively by avahi-dnsconfd (a daemon which config- ures unicast DNS servers using server info published via mDNS) and nss-mdns (a libc NSS plugin, providing name resolution via mDNS). Finally there is the D-Bus interface which provides a rich object oriented interface to D-Bus enabled applications. Upon startup avahi-daemon interprets its configuration file /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf and reads XML fragments from /etc/avahi/ser- vices/*.service which may define static DNS-SD services. If you enable publish-resolv-conf-dns-servers in avahi-daemon.conf the file /etc/resolv.conf will be read, too. OPTIONS
-f | --file= FILE Specify the configuration file to read. (default: /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf) -D | --daemonize Daemonize after startup. Implies --syslog. -s | --syslog Log to syslog instead of STDERR. Implied by --daemonize. --debug Increase verbosity to debug level. --no-rlimits Don't enforce resource limits as specified in the configuration file. (See setrlimit(2) for more information) --no-drop-root Don't drop root privileges after startup and don't require daemon to be started as root. We recommend not to use this option. --no-chroot Don't chroot(2) the daemon. This option is only available when compiled with chroot() support. --no-proc-title Don't change the process name while running. Unless this option is specified avahi-daemon will reflect its current state and the selected host name in the process title. -k | --kill Kill an already running avahi-daemon. (equivalent to sending a SIGTERM) -r | --reload Tell an already running avahi-daemon to reread /etc/resolv.conf (in case you enabled publish-resolv-conf-dns-servers in avahi-dae- mon.conf) the files from /etc/avahi/services/. Please note that this will not reload the /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf. (equivalent to sending a SIGHUP) -c | --check Return 0 as return code when avahi-daemon is already running. -h | --help Show help -v | --version Show version information FILES
/etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf: the default configuration file for avahi-daemon, avahi-daemon.conf(5) for more information. /etc/avahi/hosts: additional static hostname mappings to publish in mDNS, see avahi.hosts(5) for more information. /etc/avahi/services/*.service: static service definitions, see avahi.service(5) for more information. SIGNALS
SIGINT, SIGTERM: avahi-daemon will shutdown. (Same as --kill). SIGHUP: avahi-daemon will reload unicast DNS server data from /etc/resolv.conf and static service definitions from /etc/avahi/services/. (Same as --reload) SIGUSR1: avahi-daemon will dump local and remote cached resource record data to syslog. AUTHORS
