    It is not just ping. As commented in issue 155

    xhyve vm inside Docker for Mac hasn’t no Network Adapter. Or routable IP like boot2docker (192.168.100.99 like that)

    With boot2docker and a route command its possible to Route all the Container ips to the vm Network.

    We need this for xhyve.

    (there are a lot of threads on this topic in Docker for Mac forum)

    That’s normal.

    Take a look at your Mac’s interface config – there is no 172.x.x.x network on the Mac itself. Those live in the xhyve Linux VM that is actually hosting Docker.

    Network connections are mapped through when you use port maps (e.g. docker run -p ...) but ping will not work like this.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
