Can avahi publish services in other containers?

I want to run a music service, backup service and printing service in separate containers on my NAS box. I want to publish these services by running Avahi in it’s own container. Is there a way to get Avahi to see the other services in those other containers? What if I run Avahi on the host directly?

AFAIK, Avahi communicates via d-bus, and you can only run 1 Avahi per host. D-bus seems to be the fatal limitation. Any ideas how to get around this?

Thanks.

Did you found a solution to this ? I’m interrested too…

Sorry, no. I never found an answer.
