Subject: Re: Default network namespace name


Hi Rami,

This was very interesting.

How does "ip link set" distinguish between PID 1 and a namespace named "1"?


Nicolas proposed a very useful solution, which was exactly what I was looking for:
touch /var/run/netns/default
mount --bind /proc/1/ns/net /var/run/netns/default

It work like a charm!

Thank you all!



Regards,

Peter
