How can I connect a docker container to two docker networks that I have created

0 votes

Hi Guys,

I am working on a project. For that I used Docker container. By default every docker container uses bridge driver for networking. Can I use more than one driver in my docker container?

Thank You

Hi@akhtar,

It's correct that the network argument of the docker run command only supports one network. But we can connect another network card to our container.

Example:

create multiple networks

  1. docker network create --driver bridge net1
  2. docker network create --driver host net2

run the container using the initial network and connect it to the other network.

  1. docker run  -it --name Ubuntu --network net1 Ubuntu
  2. docker network connect net2 Ubuntu

Hope this will help you.

Thank You

I think docker does not support creating multiple instances of host network driver, hence the command for net2 is failing. The point i would like to clarify here is that a container could be able to attach to multiple user defined networks.
