Hi , I guess that the code line

rc-update add avahi default

should be modified in:

rc-update add avahi-daemon default

Regards Giampiero

Service discovery

It would be nice to add instructions on setting up zeroconf so that clients can discover services, for example, this snippet in /etc/avahi/services/smb.service which will make smb services discoverable

<?xml version="1.0" standalone='no'?>
<!DOCTYPE service-group SYSTEM "avahi-service.dtd">
<service-group>
 <name replace-wildcards="yes">%h</name>
 <service>
   <type>_smb._tcp</type>
   <port>445</port>
 </service>
 <service>
   <type>_device-info._tcp</type>
   <port>0</port>
   <txt-record>model=RackMac</txt-record>
 </service>
</service-group>

Thanks for considering this suggestion Benny

Thanks for the suggestion! In general, i'd say that if you feel something should be added to the wiki, and you're fairly confident that it won't break someone's system, just go ahead and add it yourself. It's easy enough to roll back if it turns out there's some serious issue, or (more likely) to make some small tweaks if necessary.
