Access container over network


(Andyverbunt) #1

Hi,

I’m currently running a docker container on my OSX Mac Mini (via boot2docker).
The container is running Apache and I can access it on this machine via http://192.168.59.103:8080/index.html

Now, I would like to access this container on my Macbook which is on the same wifi network as that Mini.
The Mac Mini has ip address 192.168.9.5 so I would like to use http://192.168.9.5:8080/index.html

Any help is much appreciated.
I’ve read a lot of articles about port forwarding, but they all seem to be linux specific.

Best regards,
Andy

Having found a solution that works for me, I thought I’d share the relevant link with everybody.
Unfortunately, as a new user on the forums I cannot post more than one link.
So anyways, you should look for the WORKAROUNDS.md on the boot2docker github repository.

Best regards,
Andy
