Join overlay network from local container


(Charlietbr) #1

I have a really basic question that I haven’t been able to get answered since Tutum days. How do I join a container on my local machine to my private Docker Cloud overlay network?

For example, suppose I have a database on Docker Cloud that’s only available over the overlay network. How do I access it from a local client?

I would think I’d run a Weave agent locally to just join my local client to the network so I could access it, but I can’t find instructions anywhere on how to do this, and when I tried to hack it together it didn’t work.

I would also very much like to know the answer.
