Description

This module manages Avahi for mDNS/DNS-SD services.

RHEL/CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian and OpenBSD are supported using Puppet 5 or later.

Setup

Beginning with avahi

In the very simplest case, you can just include the following:

include dbus
include avahi

Usage

Install Avahi and add static service definitions for SSH and SFTP:

include dbus
include avahi

avahi::service { 'ssh':
  description       => '%h',
  replace_wildcards => true,
  services          => [
    {
      'type' => '_ssh._tcp',
      'port' => 22,
    },
  ],
}

avahi::service { 'sftp-ssh':
  description       => '%h',
  replace_wildcards => true,
  services          => [
    {
      'type' => '_sftp-ssh._tcp',
      'port' => 22,
    },
  ],
}

Install Avahi and add a static host entry on behalf of an mDNS-unaware router:

include dbus
include avahi

avahi_host { 'router.local':
  ensure => present,
  ip     => '192.0.2.1',
}
