NAME

avahi-dnsconfd - Unicast DNS server from mDNS/DNS-SD configuration daemon

SYNOPSIS

avahi-dnsconfd [options] avahi-dnsconfd --kill avahi-dnsconfd --refresh avahi-dnsconfd --check

DESCRIPTION

avahi-dnsconfd connects to a running avahi-daemon and runs the script /etc/avahi/avahi- dnsconfd.action for each unicast DNS server that is announced on the local LAN. This is useful for configuring unicast DNS servers in a DHCP-like fashion with mDNS.

OPTIONS

-D | --daemonize Daemonize after startup and redirect log messages to syslog. -s | --syslog Log to syslog instead of STDERR. Implied by --daemonize. -k | --kill Kill an already running avahi-dnsconfd. (equivalent to sending a SIGTERM) -r | --refresh Tell an already running avahi-dnsconfd to refresh the DNS server data. (equivalent to sending a SIGHUP) -c | --check Return 0 as return code when avahi-dnsconfd is already running. -h | --help Show help -v | --version Show version information

FILES

/etc/avahi/avahi-dnsconfd.action: the script to run when a DNS server is found or removed.

SIGNALS

SIGINT, SIGTERM: avahi-dnsconfd will shutdown. This is issued by passing --kill to avahi- daemon. SIGHUP: avahi-dnsconfd will refresh the DNS server data.
