Ensure Avahi Server is not enabled


Avahi is a free zeroconf implementation, including a system for multicast DNS/DNS-SD service discovery. Avahi allows programs to publish and discover services and hosts running on a local network with no specific configuration. For example, a user can plug a computer into a network and Avahi automatically finds printers to print to, files to look at and people to talk to, as well as network services running on the machine.


Run one of the following commands to disable avahi-daemon:
# chkconfig avahi-daemon off
# systemctl disable avahi-daemon
# update-rc.d avahi-daemon disable
