i’m sure this is quite a basic thing, but i’ve only just started on docker.
i’m running windows 2016 server, docker CE (Version 18.03.1-ce-win65 (17513))
i have a container running an image (website).
this is working - on another PC on my network i can access the website … http://server1:94/webpage1.aspx
“docker run --detach --name Website1 --publish 94:94 website1_image”
when i run in a service, i can’t access this website. browser hangs on “connecting” … then “this site cannot be reached”.
i’ve checked as much as i can - service is running, “docker service ls” says running “replicas 1/1”. drilling into the tasks of the service shows no errors. so everything looks ok.
when i do a docker swarm init - i’m given the choice of 2 ip address - i picked 1, the service failed to start, i picked the other, service started. so i’ve stuck with the latter ip address.
i’ve compared settings between my container and service. the only difference i can see is port mapping.
the container has “0.0.0.0:94->94/tcp”. the service has “*:94->94/tcp”.
my docker-compose file is simple:
i run with this : “docker stack deploy -c docker-compose.yml website1”
if you can provide any insight i would be extremely grateful. i’m sure this is a simple thing but i don’t have the experience of docker to understand what’s going on .
so i’m getting closer …
“docker service create --replicas 2 --name contentlinksapi --publish mode=host,target=94,published=94,protocol=tcp contentlinksapi”
now my website is accessible on another PC in network on port 94. BUT – only one or two of the containers in the service fires up. the second container complains that port already in use. Arrrghh !
this is hard work. i’m obviously missing some fundamental information about how these things work - but where is this information ??? it wasn’t in the “getting started tutorials”.
