Centos avahi mdns


Avahi mdns is similar to Apple Bonjour and allows hosts to be referenced using the hostname on the the local network (LAN), without adding a DNS record.

#Install the avahi mdns, start the service and enable at boot time

> yum install avahi avahi-tools nss-mdns

> yum start avahi-daemon

> yum enable avahi-daemon

Test the service is operational with

ping myhost.local

nss-mdns must be installed before the host can ping itself using the .locak domain
