The Avahi Walk of Fame lists many open-source applications that work with Zeroconf.

Avahi can browse services published on wide-area networks (WANs), by setting certain unicast DNS records for the domain.

Benjamin Sherman has an article about publishing services with Avahi.

To enable Avahi for IPv6:

Testing ping: if you're using link-local IPv6 addresses and not global ones, you need to use the -I option to specify outgoing interface w/ ping:

ping -I wlan0 router.local

Publishing new addresses

Aliases (Python 2-only) publishes new address in a command-line tool via D-Bus. The avahi-aliases project does the same, but you can do so from /etc/avahi/aliases.d/.
