I suppose the dns-sd command you gave me should return info on all FTP
services within the domain. I dabbled with avahi some time
ago and if I remember correctly the command you are searching for is
avahi-browse (which is included in the avahi-utils package). You'll
easily find a manpage for it on the net. avahi-discover does the same
thing, but with a GUI. I'm not sure about the functionality of the
libraries, but I suppose you could also use either them or the avahi
DBUS interface to achieve whatever you want (probably more efficient
than doing everything on the commandline).
