I want to use a container with a NIC in promiscuous mode for capturing all
the traffic from a mirror port.

I have:

- LXD server with two bridge "br0" and "br1". ("br1" configured as PROMISC
with interface eth1 as PROMISC)
- Container with two interfaces "eth0" and "eth1". ("eth1" configured as

I can see all traffic from mirror port in LXD Server with "br1" and "eth1"
but i cann´t see traffic in the container. Why?

When container starts a new interface is created in LXD Server for bridge
"br1"  (new interface: veth4Q0L0U)

    bridge name     bridge id               STP enabled     interfaces
    br1                 **************                   no


Also i have setup veth4Q0L0U as PROMISC but i cann´t see traffic from
mirror port in the container.
