Hello.

We have Asterisk PBX running in container, and now we want to add Asterisk for Skype functionality. However it requires to "register" your server with a special cli utility which uses MAC-address of eth0. Since eth0 is not available from inside the container we cannot generate our key Sad

Is it possible to make eth0 available for a script running inside a container?

Thanks in advance.

You can
(1) make eth0 available to container by using vzctl set NNN --netdev_add eth0 --save
(2) make a veth device in container and rename it to eth0, see wiki for details

I'd prefer the second variant.

Thank you very much, kir!

For those who may need it:
Minimal variant:
vzctl set CTID --netif_add eth0 --save

then in CT
ifconfig -a

Belko:

Did this ever happen to you once the skype for asterisk license is registered. Once you reboot the VE, asterisk doesn't seem to be able to find the license again...


Very weird
