I need DNS-SD functionality on an embedded device that I'm making. I
noticed that avahi-core is recommended for this application type and
not avahi-client. What is the real difference between the two? Is
there an example service publish/browse application using avahi-core
instead of avahi-client?
What doesn't avahi-core allow me to do?
Does avahi-core require the avahi-daemon to be running? Or can I just
make API calls via avahi-core without avahi-daemon running and does
this allow me to publish a service? How about browsing services
published on a network, is this possible without avahi-daemon?
