How does networking on Docker for Windows work?

I'm having some trouble understanding Docker for Windows and how the networking works. I can't understanding where to look between windows, hyper-v adapter/switch, ubuntu, and docker.

Here are a few helpful bullets:

  • Docker for Windows creates a Hyper-V Linux VM named MobyLinuxVM.
  • Hyper-V VMs must be connected to a Virtual Switch in order to have network access
  • Docker for Windows creates a Hyper-V Internal Virtual Switch named DockerNAT

Each container has a virtual network adapter (vNIC) which is connected to a Hyper-V virtual switch (vSwitch). The first time the docker engine runs, it will create a default NAT network, 'nat', which uses an internal vSwitch and a Windows component named WinNAT
