Docker and Windows – Problems with SSH on default container

i’m new to Docker and i’ve just intalled Docker ToolBox 1.11.1 on my Windows 7 (64 bit).
When running Quickstart Terminal i’ve got problems with creating default container.
After reading a bunch of forums i’ve invoked :

docker-machine rm -f default
docker-machine --debug create -d virtualbox default 

But still without result. Full logs from last operation are :

  • headless watir webdriver tests unable to find firefox
  • Setting up three docker images - one as a proxy to the other two
  • Install nginx dynamic module using docker compose
  • Fig Python 3 Compatible?
  • docker find container by pid of inside process
  • Docker 5 beta4 kestrel doesn't keep container running
  • They end up with phrase :
    “(default) DBG | Error dialing TCP: dial tcp connectex: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.”

    I’ve have no idea how to fix that. Can someone help me ?

  • MongoDB running as a service, in a container of in a virtual machine [closed]
  • Kubernetes pod can't access its own service
  • application configuration as a docker image
  • How could I bind docker container to specific external interface

    In windows and Mac OS Docker run in a virtual machine. When you install Docker using the Docker Toolbox, it takes care of install Virtual Box, create a “default” virtual machine and configure it to run a Boot2Docker image.
    With the command:

    docker-machine rm -f default

    you are removing this default VM. Then running the command:

    docker-machine --debug create -d virtualbox default

    you are creating a new VM called “default”, so you are not creating or starting any default windows container.

    “Actively refused it” means that the host sent a reset instead of an ack when you tried to connect. Please, check the firewall or the proxy configuration because this is a communication problem.
    Hope this can help.

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