Hello. I would like to run a python socket server on a predefined port, say 4868.
I would like multiple hosts (linux/windows/mac as well as other containers) to connect to the container on this particular port. If I try
the container will listen for incoming connections but will always accept only the first one, because it cannot bind the same (address, port) pair twice.
I would like that every connection incoming could spawn a separate thread on the container that manages the socket connection independently.
I tried running it with the command docker run -p 4868:4868 --net my-net (my-net being my custom docker network).
The very same script if ran with a simple python compiler (instead of docker container) works as expected and can accept multiple connections on the same port.
Maybe i’m missing something about docker networking. Any hint?
