Docker jupyter notebook socket.gaierror while starting in interactive mode

Hi Team,
I am setting docker for anaconda and jupyter notebook.
Refereed link

  1. docker pull continuumio/anaconda
  2. docker run -i -t continuumio/anaconda /bin/bash
  3. docker run -i -t -p 8888:8888 continuumio/anaconda /bin/bash -c “/opt/conda/bin/conda install jupyter -y --quiet && mkdir /opt/notebooks && /opt/conda/bin/jupyter notebook --notebook-dir=/opt/notebooks --ip=’*’ --port=8888 --no-browser”

While performing step 3 getting following error.

infinity@infinity-ThinkPad-T440:~$ docker run -i -t -p 8888:8888 continuumio/anaconda /bin/bash -c “/opt/conda/bin/conda install jupyter -y --quiet && mkdir /opt/notebooks && /opt/conda/bin/jupyter notebook --notebook-dir=/opt/notebooks --ip=’*’ --port=8888 --no-browser”

@swaroops: I changed the --ip='*' parameter for /opt/conda/bin/jupyter to --ip='' and added a --allow-root parameter (i.e., after the --no-browser parameter) and all was well.
