Configuring avahi-daemon

Now wouldn’t it be nice if the Mac showed your Pi under the shared section of the Finder sidebar? For this the Raspberry Pi needs to be advertising itself on the network, Apple’s Zero Configuration protocol for this is called Bonjour. Configure Avahi for bonjour:


$ sudo apt-get install avahi-daemon

Make sure it runs at startup:

$ sudo update-rc.d avahi-daemon defaults

Create a configuration file containing information about the server. Run:

$ sudo nano /etc/avahi/services/afpd.service

Enter (or copy/paste) the following:

<?xml version="1.0" standalone='no'?><!--*-nxml-*-->
<!DOCTYPE service-group SYSTEM "avahi-service.dtd">
   <name replace-wildcards="yes">%h</name>

Press ctrl and x to exit, then press y to to save changes and return after confirming the location. Restart Avahi: “sudo /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon restart”
