How to allow pull from private registry

I can’t seem to pull from my V1 private registry.

Error response from daemon: Get EOF

On my Linux clients I have to edit my DOCKER_OPTS for them to connect. Is there an equiv for my Windows machine?

What did you change for DOCKER_OPTS on linux to make it work? Was it to add --insecure-registry? If so, the same should work from a windows client.

@jblevins We’re working on extending settings management to be passed to the Docker engine - stay tuned.

Has there been any progress in this area yet? Not being able to pull from my private registry renders this whole Docker on Windows thing worthless for me.


I really enjoyed testing the beta, but now I’m working on a project using private registries and won’t be able to continue until this is fixed.
It’s really a shame because the performance using Hyper-V is so much better than VirtualBox.

Can you give some more details to the performance-improvements of hyper-v? I think also about returning to the virtualbox-based solution.

I don’t have a benchmark, but the beta starter much quicker than the Virtualbox VM, and it consumes less resources even when no containers are running.

With the new Beta14 you can define private registries. So we can hopefully swap over to DfW instead of docker-toolbox…

What is the correct syntax for the insecure-registries for Windows 10. I added “insecure-registries”: [“dockreg:5000”] to my config and it restarts just fine but when I try and do a docker pull dockreg:5000/mycontainer it is still trying to contact my registry host via https and not http.
