What is 'userland proxy'?

(Mikeleblanc) #1

I am very much a docker novice. Very. Here goes …

Running Version 18.03.0-ce-mac60 (23751) on MacOS High Sierra (10.13.3). My aim is to run the container diginc/pi-hole. From a fresh and empty docker installation, I did this:

$ docker pull diginc/pi-hole
Using default tag: latest

Status: Downloaded newer image for diginc/pi-hole:latest

Next I adapted the script ‘’ by avoiding trying to use the nonexistent utility ‘ip’ and wiring in my chosen IP address. Here’s what happens:

$ bash
IP: - IPv6:
docker: Error response from daemon: driver failed programming external connectivity on endpoint pihole (00d38ac72e3626b53916e4aa384a91164b1c84c684ae40dd17d2f4a185d11acf): Error starting userland proxy: Bind for unexpected error (Failure EADDRINUSE).

At this point I’m stuck. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to proceed? Thanks.

Did I mention I’m a complete novice?

Here is my version of

$ cat
IP="${IP:-$IP_LOOKUP}" # use $IP, if set, otherwise IP_LOOKUP
IPv6="${IPv6:-$IPv6_LOOKUP}" # use $IPv6, if set, otherwise IP_LOOKUP
DOCKER_CONFIGS="$(pwd)" # Default of directory you run this from, update to where ever.

echo “IP: ${IP} - IPv6: ${IPv6}”

docker run -d
–name pihole
-p 53:53/tcp -p 53:53/udp -p 80:80
-v “${DOCKER_CONFIGS}/pihole/:/etc/pihole/”
-v “${DOCKER_CONFIGS}/dnsmasq.d/:/etc/dnsmasq.d/”
-e ServerIP="${IP}"
-e ServerIPv6="${IPv6}"

docker logs pihole 2> /dev/null | grep ‘password:’
