Thanks for the reply. I read through some documents. Some questions I am unsure about:
1. When a service registers with the avahi-deamon (telling it which service it provies on which port), is this information imidiatly published through the network or does it just stay on the local machine as long as no dns-sd queries come?
2. How does the browsing for services work? Is it as simple as this, or is there more to it:
- The browsing client sends a "give me your services" request to 188.8.131.52::5353
- All other clients reply with a list of services.
