Need information on configuring http proxy for containers. I have configured as below.
- Base OS - Ubuntu 16.04
- Have enabled the http_proxy variable in /etc/environment and also in the /etc/default/docker file.
- Updated the the Environment (http_proxy) variable in /etc/systemd/system/docker.service.d/http-proxy.conf
When we launch a container with the above setting in place, the http_proxy doesn’t show up any values inside the container. The container is not able to access the internet. But once we set the http_proxy variable from inside the container, it is working fine.
Do we need to pass the http_proxy as an environmental variable while launching the container ? Is it mandatory ? Would it not take the values set from the above settings ? Pls let me know if I am missing anything in the configuration ?
