Windows 10 - place container directly on local network?

docker

(Rockoutwithyourclockout) #1

I’ve been trying to place my container direclty on my local network. I’ve tried setting up MACVLAN and by using a docker-machine but I’ve been unable to communicate directly to the container.

Here is what I’ve done…

  1. Created a “macvlan” network named “LOCAL” and gave it the subnet from my local LAN. NOTE: I tied using the name of my local NIC for the parent interface but it always failed. I could only get the below command to be accepted by using “eth0”. Is this correct? What name is Docker expecting here?

docker network create -d macvlan LOCAL --subnet=192.168.0.0/24 --gateway=192.168.0.1 -o parent=eth0

  1. Ran an image, named it “SONARR”, attached it to the newly created “LOCAL” network and gave it an IP from the “LOCAL” subnet.

docker run --name=SONARR --net=LOCAL --ip=192.168.0.100 linuxserver/sonarr

  1. Adjusted “MobyLinuxVM” virtual switch to use an “external” network that ties direclty to my PC’s NIC.

Once this is complete I’m unable to communicate with the container at 192.168.0.100. I have a packet-capture running and do not see any packets whatsoever coming from 192.168.0.100.

Any ideas what I’m doing wrong? Does “MACVLAN” work on Windows 10? Should I be using a “docker-machine” instead?

Thanks for any help you can give!
