LXC Linux Containers with second network interface

LXC Linux Containers provide a great and fast virtualisation solution

LXC Linux container with two network interfaces

LXC Linux containers can be used with more then one nic. Just add a second group of config lines to your config file.

Here is an example:

lxc.network.type=veth
lxc.network.link=br0
lxc.network.flags=up
lxc.network.hwaddr = 3a:76:42:49:79:bf
lxc.network.ipv4 = 192.168.1.47/24
lxc.network.name = eth0

lxc.network.type=veth
lxc.network.link=br0
lxc.network.flags=up
lxc.network.hwaddr = 3a:76:42:51:79:bf
lxc.network.ipv4 = 192.168.10.42/24
lxc.network.name = eth1

After lxc-start of this container, there will be an /dev/eth0 and a /dev/eth1 inside the container. Both can be used. Don't forget to setup the proper routing :)
