In the Git source tree, the TUTORIAL directory contains a hierarchy that persistently enables IP forwarding through sysctl upon the remote SSH host named avocado

First you have to setup SSH public-key authentication for a remote host with hostname avocado. It’s important that the hostnames match.

Once that is done, you can proceed with the example:

rr avocado sysctl:apply
Steps that rr performs
  1. Copies .files-avocado/ to avocado:/
  2. Generates the script:
unset IFS
set -efu
sysctl --system
  1. Runs the script on host avocado via SSH.

Local invocation of scripts

Run locally, the default without a hostname or container PID specified.
Requires tar(1) for .files
The following are equivalent:

rr namespace:script
rr localhost namespace:script

Run scripts inside a local container

NOTE: Linux only

Run on a local container’s PID via nsenter(1). Requires tar(1) for .files.

rr 1333 namespace:script

Run scripts remote via SSH

Requires OpenSSH 4.7+ for .files.

rr remotehost namespace:script

If a file named rr.hosts is in the current directory then that is used as the SSH config instead of the default ~/.ssh/config.

Install podman to remote Ubuntu 20.04 host
