NAME

podman-network - Manage Podman networks

SYNOPSIS

podman network subcommand

DESCRIPTION

The network command manages networks for Podman.

Podman supports two network backends Netavark and CNI. Netavark is the default network backend and was added in Podman v4.0. CNI will be deprecated in the future in preference of Netavark. To configure the network backend use the network_backendkey under the [Network] in containers.conf(5). New systems should use netavark by default, to check what backed is used run podman info --format {{.Host.NetworkBackend}}.

All network commands work for both backends but CNI and Netavark use different config files so networks have to be created again after a backend change.
