avahi-daemon-bridge-dsd - The Avahi daemon bridge to dsd
The daemon implements a DBUS interface which provides a rich object oriented interface to DBUS enabled applications which browse for or
register for services.
Instead of implementing Apple's ZeroConf architecture (also known as "Rendezvous" or "Bonjour") it makes calls to the DNS Service Discovery
API provided by Bonjour and so functions as a Bonjour client.

name in the process title.
