Error saying "must specify a listening address"

0 votes

ScaleWay gives my server an IP address that is not attached to a local interface as it gives the following error

# docker swarm init --advertise-addr <my-external-ip>:2377 --listen-addr
Error response from daemon: must specify a listening address
because the address to advertise is not recognized as a system address

How is docker swarm supposed to be setup in such an environment?
