Was trying to enable ping from within the jail created using sysutils/ezjail , however on a web search I was getting different ways of configuring the same parameters, which is confusing.

In, /usr/local/etc/ezjail/testjail1

The following did not work:
Code:
export jail_shell_parameters="allow.raw_sockets=1"

Then:
Code:
export jail_testjail1_allow_raw_sockets="YES"

This worked:
Code:
export jail_testjail1_parameters="allow.raw_sockets"

https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/cant-ping-from-jails.52508/
https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/ezjail-network.41666/

If this changed due to jail.conf then why can't the ezjail describe/notify about this?
It is frustrating just to spend time on making ping work.

Edit: My mistake in using the first option, the poster has a jail named shell, but I confused it with the shell of the jail.

Dear mzs47,
please excuse the late question.
Code:
export jail_testjail1_parameters="allow.raw_sockets=1"
did finally work?
