I am running Windows 7 on my desktop at work and I am signed in to a regular user account on the VPN. To develop software, we are to normally open a Dev VM and work from in there however recently I’ve been assigned a task to research Docker and Mongo DB. I have very limited access to what I can install on the main machine.
Here lies my problem:
Is it possible for me to connect to a MongoDB instance inside a container inside the docker machine from Windows and make changes? I would ideally like to use a GUI tool such as Mongo Management Studio to make changes to a Mongo database within a container.
By inspecting the Mongo container, it has the ports listed as: 0.0.0.0:32768 -> 27017/tcp
and docker-machine ip (vm name) returns 192.168.99.111.
I have commented out the 127.0.0.1 binding host ip within the mongod.conf file also.
From what I have researched so far, most users resolve their problem by connecting to their docker-machine IP with the port they’ve set with -p or been given with -P. Unfortunately for me, trying to connect with 192.168.99.111:32768 does not work.
I am pretty stumped and quite new to this environment. I am able to get inside the container with bash and manipulate the database there however I’m wondering if I can do this within Windows. Hopefully i’ve explained this properly, I would have used images but new users cannot upload them.
Thank you if anyone can help.
