when running avahi-discover
Browsing domain 'local' on -1.-1 ...
Browsing domain 'hsd1.in.comcast.net' on -1.-1 ...
and I get a dialog box entitled avahi discovery
with > wide area
when I run avahi-browse -all
I get nothing. Command locks up until I force termination
when I go to my iphone, select a photo, click on print and then "select printer" the iphone times out with exit error "No AirPrint Printers Found."
netstat -a | grep mdns
udp 0 0 0.0.0.0:mdns 0.0.0.0:*
udp6 0 0 [::]:mdns [::]:*
firewalld show port 5353 associated with mdns
Also, I want to write my own avahi service. Where is the config file that associates the <type> to the service such as <type>_http_tcp</type> in the .service file?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 25 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 25 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-12-12. Fedora 25 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
