When I run avahi-browse in our office LAN, I see my own host advertising something called "Remote Disk Management":
The service is marked as local, but I only have a very foggy idea of how Avahi/Zeroconf work, and I'm a bit worried. I'd rather not have my disks managed (or shared) remotely. The thing seems related to the udisks service, of which I also know little, except that it probably helps with automounting removable storage devices.
$ avahi-browse -at
+ eth0 IPv6 myhostname-2 Remote Disk Management local
+ eth0 IPv4 myhostname-2 Remote Disk Management local
+ eth0 IPv6 myhostname-2 [12:34:56:78:9a:bc] Workstation local
+ eth0 IPv4 myhostname-2 [12:34:56:78:9a:bc] Workstation local
There is only one entry in /etc/avahi/services - udisks.service:
Should I just (re)move this file? It can't be doing much good anyway, because my sshd is configured to use a different (non-standard) port.
<?xml version="1.0" standalone='no'?><!--*-nxml-*-->
<!DOCTYPE service-group SYSTEM "avahi-service.dtd">
<!-- This file is part of udisks -->
Thanks in advance for any useful advice.
