Wireshark Basics Lab - Purpose of clabnet command

I would like to understand the usage of clabnet command.
Also details of network setup for this lab simulation.

Welcome to forums!!

I don’t want to speak for the lab developer, but I can say that clabnet is an alias which starts containernet. Containernet is a fork of mininet that can use docker images. The point is to create a “network in a box” using simulated hosts simulated switches and routers. If you want to see the network topology you can exclude the & after the containernet command and issue the “dump” command to see all simulated devices and the IP addresses used.
