This is a Dockerfile to set up Avahi.
This container will run an avahi daemon and broadcast services based on other containers.
Dynamically generating services is possible by exporting the following environment variables:
|SERVICE_NAME||The name of the service broadcasted by avahi|
|SERVICE_PORT||The port where the service is located|
|SERVICE_TYPE||The type of service|
First, boot up the container you intend to broadcast the service from. For example, a samba container:
$ docker run \ -e "SERVICE_NAME=MyServer" -e "SERVICE_PORT=445" -e "SERVICE_TYPE=_smb._tcp" -p 137:137 -p 138:138 -p 139:139 -p 445:455 -v /mnt/data:/data dperson/samba
Next, start up the avahi container which will generate the services dynamically:
$ docker run \ --net=host -v /var/run/docker.sock:/tmp/docker.sock:ro nunofgs/avahi
A special thank you to nginx-proxy which this project is based on.
