How to get exposed ports and host IP addresses of service in 1.12


(Sl4dy) #1

I run simple stateless NGINX service in 1.12 with overlay networking. However I need to access this service (or the containers) from non Dockerized environment. So my question is simple - how do I get exposed ports and related Docker hosts IPs of my NGINX containers?

If you use the --publish flag for docker service you can specify a “swarm port” which will listen for ingress to the specified service port on the designated port on all nodes of the cluster.

e.g., forward port 80 for the created service to 80 on all nodes:

$ docker service create --publish 80:80 nginx

$ curl -4 localhost
