I see nothing.
What I see is blocked packages in the firewall:

Dec 4 01:19:13 Telcontar kernel: [1140797.184192] SFW2-INext-DROP-DEFLT IN=eth0 OUT= MAC=00:21:85:16:2d:0b:00:01:02:03:04:05:08:00 SRC= DST= LEN=84 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=64 ID=4981 PROTO=ICMP TYPE=0 CODE=0 ID=65380 SEQ=1

It is this port:

mdns 5353/tcp # Multicast DNS

Should I open it? [...] Indeed, after I open it I see a few things in "avahi-discover-standalone". The printer twice (ipv6), and my computer, three times (ipv4, workstation, sftp, ssh). My laptop, the DTV and the router, do not appear.

It lists open ports as one entry per machine, it seems.
