Use of Avahi (zeroconf) to discover and mount ftp/afp/nfs/scp

Registered by Tom Jaster on 2010-07-20

Avahi is a zeroconf implementation which can interfaced very simply by dbus. It's used to inform hosts in the network about the services provided. In the first step we could search for ftp,ssh (scp), nfs and afp services in the network. The second step would be to write a daemon which watches and informs avahi about the available services on the own host - or expanding e.g. ftp Servers to notify avahi about themself
