Welcome to Avahi
What is it ?
Avahi is a system which facilitates service discovery on a local network.
This means that you can plug your laptop or computer into a network and instantly be able to view other people who you can chat with, find printers to print to or find files being shared.
This kind of technology is already found in MacOS X (branded 'Rendezvous', 'Bonjour' and sometimes 'ZeroConf?') and is very convenient.
Avahi is based on Lennart Poettering's flexmdns mDNS implemenation for Linux which has been discontinued in favour of Avahi.
