Error when Docker pull - how to go around IP6 issues?


I have an issue with Docker whenever I try to pull an image. The following error message appears: “error pulling image configuration: download failed after attempts=6: unexpected EOF”. After many failed attempts and searches, I came across this page: IP6 Known Issues.


Oddly enough, if I use a VPN proxy, the docker pull works fine. I’m not sure an IP4 vs IP6 issue.

If there is a way around this problem, I would appreciate it.

The error message you shared indicates that the download failed after six attempts. Pity the relevant part of the error message is cut of.

This error message alone does not indicate any relation to ipv6.

What does the self diagnose tool and logs say about it? Troubleshoot Docker Desktop | Docker Docs

When run “C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\resources\com.docker.diagnose.exe” and open the diagnostic file as in the link “code $Env:LOCALAPPDATA\Docker\log”. There are a lot of logs and I’m not sure where to find the network fail to pull image.
