RDP into Windows Docker Container


(Sujeetkp) #1

I have read a lot of Blogs and Discussions, but have not found any solutions yet for RDP into a Windows Docker Container. Is it really possible now ?

I guess the question is related to this discussion. It appears that everything is run in the non-interactive Session 0 to which you probably want be able to connect for security reasons. However the new Windows image should be in theory capable of running RDP services which makes me optimistic…

New Images ? Are they already released ? Are you talking about the below image ?

No, the image is in preview, follow the link from the other question. But showing GUI or connecting via RDP is not there yet it just became theoretically possible imho.

Mail]( for Windows 10

The image is not published on dockerhub, but you can pull as:
get your windows server insider preview version, then
docker pull$versiontag

or windows 10,
docker pull

@gangli59 : I am getting the below error when I tried to Pull the image

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> docker pull
latest: Pulling from windows-insider
a Windows version 10.0.17758-based image is incompatible with a 10.0.17134 host

Is it because my Win10 version is lower than the image ?

As I understood, the docker windows images runs in VM mode container in Windows 10, It should not care about the Windows version. However the VM is a special Hyper-V VM, your system may missing some features to support it.
