Configure container network

Configure host network in Terminal 1 (Container)

  1. Ensure you’re in Terminal 1 - the container terminal and bring up the loopback interface. List the interfaces.

    ip link set lo up
    ifconfig -a
    
  2. Rename the c interface to eth0

    ip link set c<replaceitwithCPID> name eth0 up
    
  3. Assign IP address of 172.17.42.3 /16 to our eth0 interface and set default gateway to 172.17.0.1

    ip addr add 172.17.42.3/16 dev eth0
    ip route add default via 172.17.0.1
    
  4. Check the configuration and try to ping the outside world from our network namespace

    ifconfig -a
    ping amazon.com
