I am trying to connect a device (LiDAR) through Docker since it needs Ubuntu 16 while my computer is Ubunutu 20.
I got the device to ping inside the docker container, but it is not recognised when I try to use it.
What I did:
Made Dockerfile with requirements (Added EXPOSE to expose all ports)
Built docker image using:
docker build -t testLidar
I then made a container using
docker run -d -P --name testLidar (imagename)
I am able to ping my LiDAR IP inside the container, but when I do
ip a I cannot see the interfaces connected to my machine.
Note : I have done the exact same steps but on an Ubuntu 16 machine. The only change was the
docker run command had
--net host instead of
-P tag and my device worked perfectly. I feel like this is the root of my problem.
Been stuck on this for 3 days, any suggestions?
