Changing wifi network from within docker container?


#1

Is it possible to change what wifi network my raspberry pi is connected to from within the docker container? (asking specifically for conman and resinOS v1)

Hey @zain, it is possible, but normally not recommended because it has a very real danger of pulling your device offline and having to send some one to service the device. With resinOS 2.0 its a lot easier and in the future we hope to use some of networkManagers configuration check point functionality.

For now I think the best source of information on add in a new wifi connection from within the container is to look at the way it is done in resin-wifi-connect, specifically you can take a look at connman.coffee where all the connman 1.X specific code lives.
