Openvas Docker installation cannot detect the MAC address

Hey, trying to do a LAN scan using Openvas docker installation, but it seems that MAC address can’t get detected. Why is that and is there anything I can do to solve this issue?

@DeeAnn , @cfi Can you check please and see if Greenbone can come up with a workaround or solution for this issue?

While i understand that a quick answer is desired please try to avoid pinging users directly:

I have no insights / knowledge on Docker internals, can’t give any answers on this and got an unnecessary notification now. :slightly_frowning_face:

I’m not even sure if any workaround or solution can be provided by Greenbone here, this looks more Docker specific and you might need to dig into this topic from Docker (networking) side.

Thanks for your understanding.

It is typically a permission problem with your OS running docker and what does the container get from the kernel. So check your capabilities you delegated to the docker container.
