Transparent network

I installed docker for windows stable (latest), but when I try to do
network create -d transparent test
it says “Error response from daemon: plugin not found”

What should I do to allow containers to access the host network like it’s another PC
(I need to make like the container is another PC in the network for a specific corner case)

Is it possible as today?
Thank you

Same trouble.
I try to create network guided by this article


But there is same error
$ docker network create -d transparent MyTransparentNetwork
Error response from daemon: plugin not found

Any suggestions? Is there any additional actions, which must be done for correct transparent network creation? How to add transparent network driver?

My OS is windows 10 Pro, 1511, build 10586.589

I answer myself. For transparent network, docker must work in windows containers mode. For now it can be done with windows insider preview version. Stable, current windows version don’t support windows containers.

There are another problems with windows insider preview and docker beta, for example docker-compose completely don’t work.
$ docker-compose up -d
ERROR: client version 1.22 is too old. Minimum supported API version is 1.24, please upgrade your client to a newer version

But transparent network work well.

I am also running into this same issue.

$ docker network create -d transparent tlan
Error response from daemon: legacy plugin: plugin not found

My OS is Windows 10 Pro Version 1703 (OS Build 15063.540)
My Docker For Windows is Version 17.06.2-ce-win27 (13194) (428bd6c)

Is current version of windows not supporting containers still an issue?
