wget -P /etc/yum.repos.d http://yum.loway.ch/loway.repo

docker run -p 8080:8080 -d loway/wombatdialer
WombatDialer will be available on port 8080 in a few seconds. The User Manual has a chapter on running under Docker,
including how to set up configuration parameters and to have permanent storage.
