  • Applies to:
  • Virtuozzo 6.0
  • Virtuozzo containers for Linux
  • Virtuozzo hypervisor 5.0


Command line tools ping and ping6 do not work on Fedora 17 and Fedora 18 containers:
[root@fedora ~]# ping
-bash: /bin/ping: Operation not permitted


The ping and ping6 tools require kernel cap_net_raw capability.


Enable net_raw capability on ping tools inside the container:
[root@fedora ~]# setcap cap_net_raw+ep /bin/ping
[root@fedora ~]# setcap cap_net_raw+ep /bin/ping6
