Docker on WIndows 10 with Symantec and File Sharing

(Dlwester) #1

I am trying to use Docker on Windows 10. Our company uses Symantec Endpoint Protection for security. When I tried to run ‘docker-compose up’, I was getting a popup that the firewall was blocking Docker from file sharing with the containers.

I was able to get around this problem by adding Application Exceptions to Symantec. Since I wasn’t sure which programs I would need in order to be able to share, I added all of the executables and DLLs to the exception list. This caused the problem to go away.

However, I really hate to have such a huge list specified as exceptions. I was just wondering if anyone would know which programs and/or DLLs need file sharing in order to work?

Would you be able to provide a list of what you did end up whitelisting? Also, are you able to retrieve any sort of logs from SEP that would indicate what it is actually blocking?

Hi, Matt! Thanks for your quick reply.

I ended up whitelisting every executable and DLL, because I didn’t want to waste time on trial and error.
C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Bugsnag.dll
C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\concrt140.dll
C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Docker for Windows.exe
C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Docker.Backend.dll
C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Docker.Core.dll
C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Docker.Win32Helpers.dll

C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\vccorlib140.dll
C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\vcruntime140.dll

Unfortunately, when I run ‘docker-compose up’, I’m not seeing any messages in the Symantec logs, the process just hangs trying to bring up one of the containers.

I first ran into the firewall issue when I tried to share my C drive in Docker. That’s when I got a popup that there was a firewall issue. My bad, I did not look at the Symantec logs when that happened, and they have rolled over since then. I tried adding the ‘Docker for Windows.exe’ to the whitelist, but that didn’t make a difference. However, I cannot seem to duplicate that problem now, even after renaming all the files in the whitelist. So maybe I had a typo or something. It’s possible that maybe that one entry is all I need.

Interesting. Please let me know if you happen to be able to reproduce the issue and we will look into it further. Thanks!

Which SEP (Symantec) version are you using?
I’m using the latest version of docker and our company uses SEP 12.1. I have created a lot of exceptions but I always get the same error after extracting the image.

Do you have any suggestion?

Thank you very much!
