Externally accessing other containers


(Kallisti5) #1

So, looking for a workaround to this issue. Here is context:

Fedora 28, production containers deployed via docker-compose. Containers are serviced via a traefik front-end proxy in a container.

web -> (traefik) +
                         | (app_A)
                         | (app_B)
                         | (app_C)

app_A can connect to app_C (as expected), however any containers that make requests through traefik time out. I keep running into the occasional “I really need to access something via the ‘normal’ ingress”

Is there a simple way to make external access to traefik possible from containers on the same host?
