Adding that file to both f12 and f122 will show icons for both on the f12 side and allow sftp access to both. So, good job...great catch. But, of course, that just shows the inconsistencies in the various implementations...and raises another question. From this test, it would seem that the KDE implementation will send its own MDNS query and ignore the "defaults" in the services directory. But, even if GNOME does use the files in the services directory it seems to be ignoring the ssh.service file that exists. Neither f11 nor f12 system offers ssh as a service under GNOME. However, KDE in both f11 and f12 offers ssh and sftp regardless of what is in the services directory. Very confusing....and what seems to be patternless....at least at this time without coffee.... :-( -- What color is a chameleon on a mirror?
