Unable to connect from outside network


(kadynce01) #1

I have an issue that I have been fighting for over a week now. I have scoured this site looking for answers and seem to be running in circles. If this is in the wrong place sorry I can move it. I don’t usually post on blogs.

Problem

I am unable to access my Containers from outside my local network 172.168.x.x - Oddly enough the containers work on bridge mode only. Host mode I get no response from the GUI.

Being relatively new to docker-compose and working the admin side of a container. This thing is whooping my @$$. Not to mention Networking has never been my strong suit.

Details

The Host connections to 0.0.0.0:{Host_IP} does not come up. Assuming that I understand the syntax correctly in the docker compose the file.

  • port
    • {host_ip;docker_ip}
    • 9090:9090
      bridge mode only work with 192.168.x.x.

Additional Details.

I have 2 separate systems running programs that require a web GUI for configuration and access. I do manage both of these systems from remote Laptop.

System 1: The PI that I can access my home assistant just fine from the web. (Why is this important?) Because I know my router and DNS provider are connected and configured correctly.
System 2: My Linux/Ubuntu 18.04 system that I can access my Plex media server correctly. (Contains Docker Container that does not connect correctly and PMS on both a container and Home drive. Both are not running at the same time.)

Note: I Uncomment the PLex in the Docker, shut down the local version of PMS in the home directory in an effort to migrate the PMS does not connect using http://mydnsname.org:9090. nor localhost:9090 or 0.0.0.0:9090 the only connection i am unable to make is using 192.168.x.x:9090

I am not so worried about plex however I would like to get Organizer and Home assistant Plexpy Next or Own cloud and OMBI running so I can access outside the local network.

I am running a fresh install of Ubuntu as I just updated my RAID about 10 days ago and have been working on these containers eversince.
