avahi-browse-domains [ options ]
Browse for mDNS/DNS-SD network services and browsing domains using the Avahi daemon.
Specify a DNS-SD service type (e.g. _http._tcp) to browse for on the command line, or -a to browse for all available service types. Items that appear on the network are prefixed with "+", items that disappear are prefixed with "-". If --resolve is passed items that are resolved are prefixed with "=".
-a| --all Browse for all service types registered on the LAN, not just the one specified on the command line.
-D| --browse-domains Browse for browsing domains instead for services. avahi-browse-domains is equivalent to avahi-browse --browse-domains
-d| --domain= DOMAIN Browse in the specified domain. If omitted avahi-browse will browse in the default browsing domain (usually .local)
-v| --verbose Enable verbose mode.
-t| --terminate Terminate after dumping a more or less complete list.
-c| --cache Terminate after dumping all entries available in the cache.
-l| --ignore-local Ignore local services, show only remote services.
-r| --resolve Automatically resolve services found.
-f| --no-fail Don't fail if the daemon is not found running. Instead, wait until it appears. If it disconnects, try to reconnect.
-p| --parsable Make output easily parsable for usage in scripts. If enabled fields are separated by semicolons (;), service names are escaped. It is recommended to combine this with --no-db-lookup .
-k| --no-db-lookup Don't lookup services types in service type database.
-b| --dump-db Dump the service type database (may be combined with -k)
-h| --help Show help.
-V| --version Show version information.
