The BYFN (Build Your First Network) CLI Docker Container is a command line service door to manage your BYFN network. You can run it and connect to it as shell script window.

1. Start "cli" Docker container again:

$ docker start cli

$ docker ps -a | grep cli
hyperledger/fabric-tools:latest     "/bin/bash"         Up 3 seconds    cli

2. Run a "bash" shell window and keep it attached. The command prompt is changed to remind you that your are inside the "cli" Docker Container now:

$ docker exec -it cli bash

3. Figure out what is your home directory:

bash-4.4# pwd

bash-4.4# ls -l
total 12
drwxrwxr-x   3 1000   1000   4096 Apr  1 02:34 channel-artifacts
drwxr-xr-x   4 root   root   4096 Apr  1 02:34 crypto
drwxrwxr-x   2 1000   1000   4096 Feb 21 23:01 scripts

4. See how processes are running on the "cli" container.

bash-4.4# ps -a
    1 root      0:00 /bin/bash
    6 root      0:00 bash
   31 root      0:00 ps -a

5. Get out of the "cli" container. Your original command prompt shows you that you are back in the Docker Engine host system.

bash-4.4# exit
