The real solution to run ContainerLAB on MAC m1 or m2 apple silicon

Step 1: Install Canonical Multipass your MAC 

$brew install multipass


Step 2: Install the VM called docker

$multipass launch docker --name mydocker


Step 3: Connect to the new VM

$multipass shell mydocker


Step 4: Inside the VM install ContainerLab

$sudo su

#bash -c "$(curl -sL https://get.containerlab.dev)"


Let's try this simple back2back topology of two Linux computers with FRR


-- 2-frr-back2back.yml --

name: ipv6-ws

topology:

   kinds:

     linux:

       image: ghcr.io/hellt/network-multitool

   do not give:

   ROUTERS ###

     A1:

       kind: linux

       image: quay.io/frrouting/frr:8.4.1

       exec:

         - "sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding=1"

         - "ip address add dev eth1 2001:db8:ffab::1/64"

     A2:

       kind: linux

       image: quay.io/frrouting/frr:8.4.1

       exec:

         - "ip address add dev eth1 2001:db8:ffab::2/64"

         - "sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.forwarding=1"

   links:

     - endpoints: ["R1:eth1", "R2:eth1"]

Step 5: Let's build the topology with clab:

clab dep -t 2-frr-back2back.yml


Step 6: finally we are going to connect to one of the VMs inside ContainerLAB

docker exec -i -t clab-ipv6-ws-R2 bash
