Monitor Zeroconf advertisements:

avahi-daemon

If you want Avahi to publish your SSH service you must create a service config for it. You can usually just copy the example one and use it without editing it.

cp /usr/share/doc/avahi-daemon/examples/ssh.service /etc/avahi/services/.

If that example is not available then the following should work if copied to /etc/avahi/services/ssh.service.

<?xml version="1.0" standalone='no'?><!--*-nxml-*-->
<!DOCTYPE service-group SYSTEM "avahi-service.dtd">
<service-group>
  <name replace-wildcards="yes">%h</name>
  <service>
    <type>_ssh._tcp</type>
    <port>22</port>
  </service>
</service-group>
