I want to use Avahi tools for mDNS service discovery in CentOS 6.6. I have installed the following packages: avahi, avahi-tools, nss-mdns. I checked the Avahi daemon and it is running:
$ service avahi-daemon status avahi-daemon (pid 1365) is running...
But when I tried running the following avahi-browse command, it halted there and returned nothing:
$ avahi-browse --all
When I tried to launch the Avahi GUI window like the following:
$ avahi-discover bash: avahi-discover: command not found
Then I searched what Avahi-related packages are on my system:
$ rpm -qa | grep avahi avahi-autoipd-0.6.25-15.el6.x86_64 avahi-tools-0.6.25-15.el6.x86_64 avahi-glib-0.6.25-15.el6.x86_64 avahi-0.6.25-15.el6.x86_64 avahi-libs-0.6.25-15.el6.x86_64 avahi-ui-0.6.25-15.el6.x86_64
I tried on another computer which runs on Ubuntu Linux and both avahi-browse and avahi-discover work fine. So why don't
avahi-discover work on my CentOS 6.6?
