NAME

podman-network-connect - Connect a container to a network

SYNOPSIS

podman network connect [options] network container

DESCRIPTION

Connects a container to a network. A container can be connected to a network by name or by ID. Once connected, the container can communicate with other containers in the same network.

OPTIONS

--alias=name

Add network-scoped alias for the container. If the network has DNS enabled (podman network inspect -f {{.DNSEnabled}} <NAME>), these aliases can be used for name resolution on the given network. Multiple --alias options may be specified as input. NOTE: When using CNI a container will only have access to aliases on the first network that it joins. This limitation does not exist with netavark/aardvark-dns.

--ip=address

Set a static ipv4 address for this container on this network.

--ip6=address

Set a static ipv6 address for this container on this network.

--mac-address=address

Set a static mac address for this container on this network.

EXAMPLE

Connect a container named web to a network named test

podman network connect test web

Connect a container name web to a network named test with two aliases: web1 and web2

podman network connect --alias web1 --alias web2 test web

Connect a container name web to a network named test with a static ip.

podman network connect --ip 10.89.1.13 test web
