How to access container from dev machine on Docker for windows?

0 votes

I’m using a window 10 machine with docker for windows installed in it.

When I run containers using docker compose:

version: '2'
services:
    service_a:
        build: .
        container_name: docker

It creates a network default,

But the container has IP 172.18.0.4, and I can’t connect to 172.18.0.4 from host.

How can I access this container from host machine?

What you can do is, allow access to internal docker networks from your dev machine, try this:

route /P add 172.0.0.0 MASK 255.0.0.0 10.0.75.2

HI,  when I execute "route /P add 172.0.0.0 MASK 255.0.0.0 10.0.75.2  it says "The requested operation requires elevation."
Hi,

Yes, you can't connect to your container from the host machine. Because Docker containers work in an isolated environment. So you need to expose the container.
