Container showing 172.23.0.1 as source IP

docker

(Bauerj) #1

I’m using nginx inside a docker container.

A lot of entries in the access_log show 172.23.0.1 as the source IP address, only a few show plausible IPs.

ifconfig shows that this is the IP address of an interface called br-d12e89b962b7:

 br-d12e89b962b7 Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 01:42:49:df:46:b6
      inet addr:172.23.0.1  Bcast:0.0.0.0  Mask:255.255.0.0

Why does this interface forward packages for outside clients? I assume it is some kind of misconfiguration as it works sometimes.

What other IPs do you see?

AFAIK you only see the IPAM gateway as the source IP as per https://github.com/moby/moby/issues/25526
