[Solved] Containers can't access bridge network and I can't ping containers from host

Hi!

Fresh docker 19.03.6 install on Centos 7.

After docker install, I installed portainer image. I can’t access portainer and I can’t ping the container IP address. I installed ubuntu/latest image and from that container, I can’t get out to Internet to update packages.

Something seems broken with my default bridge network and how containers access it.

On another similar configured system, everything just works.

How do I go about troubleshooting this?

Thanks,

Bobby

Hi!

Solved this problem by:

  • uninstalled docker
  • yum update my centos system
  • reboot
  • re-install docker
  • re-install container/image
