These are my notes. I moved them so I don't have to maintain a blog server just for them. They may not be at all useful for anyone else.

rpi avahi (zeroconf)

Posted 01-24-2014 at 05:38 AM by nglbrkr (Notes)

To log in to a raspberry pi from debian on the LAN when you are sick of forgetting the ip address of the pi.

ssh rpi00.local -l pi
you need these:

aptitude install avahi-daemon avahi-autoipd
on both raspbian and debian (both wheezy)

and possibly

aptitude install libnss-mdns
on debian
