Error in executing docker program in a remote instance


When i tried to run a python script from a local machine in a remote machine using this command:

sudo ssh -i mykey.pem ubuntu@192.168.x.x python < /root/application/

i recieved these errors:

raise ConnectionError(err, request=request)
requests.exceptions.ConnectionError: (‘Connection aborted.’, error(13, ‘Permission denied’))

Where is the problem and how can i solve it ?

Seems like the Ubuntu host you ssh into does not have the ubuntu user as a member of the docker group so it can’t run the docker commands to the dockerd without sudo. Try running the python command with sudo or add the ubuntu-user to docker group according to
