Is there an SLA on getting a response from Docker staff.

Yes we’re seeing this too.

In theory nodes behind NAT or firewall can still operate with a ngrok secure tunnel, just as they do in BYON behind a firewall, so I don’t see how a private subnet is any different in this case.

I’m contacting support to see if or when this restriction might be lifted…

Here’s the response from support, looks positive:


Just heard back from the developers. It currently isn’t possible now but will be possible once the 1.12 engine has been pushed to the production stack in Docker Cloud. I don’t have an exact ETA but the team is actively working on getting this implemented.

Apologize for the inconvenience.

thanks for the update!

do you know if this was rolled out yet?

im finding the dockercloud experience to be hugely frustrating and limiting between not being able to use aws private subnets and the shockingly bad stackfile editor.
