Networking tools

Hi All,

I am currently using Colibri imx8x, when using SSH to TorizionCore, Nmcli tool can be used, but when running an application inside a Docker container, Nmcli is not available. My question is what would be an optimal solution to perform network management/ managing wifi? perhaps there is a way to use Nmcli inside a container. Thank you.

Greetings @A_M,

May I ask what you are trying to use network-manager inside a container for? Typically network configurations should be performed on the host system outside of a container. Or is your application/system going to be dynamically changing the network during operation?

If that is the case I’d suggest looking at the answer in this post: Change the apalis imx6 static IP address from inside a container

Give that a try and let me know if it works for you as well.

Best Regards,
