? I have done that - that's how I know there is a problem - from a
"OK, now I should be able to use ZeroTier to ssh to the container but
although I have installed and started the sshd server and allowed a
root login I get:
# ssh 10.147.18.191
ssh: connect to host 10.147.18.191 port 22: No route to host
I can ssh to other (non container) ZT IPs OK . ."
In order to connect to a container port from the outside you need to
make the ports available.
man podman run
--publish, -p=ip:hostPort:containerPort | ip::containerPort |
hostPort:containerPort | containerPort
Publish a container's port, or range of ports, to the host.
Both hostPort and containerPort can be specified as a range of ports.
When specifying ranges for both, the number of container ports in
the range must match the number of host ports in the range.
Use podman port to see the actual mapping: podman port $CONTAINER
