    and the error message is like:

    docker pull
    Error response from daemon: unable to ping registry endpoint
    v2 ping attempt failed with error: Get EOF

    and I use boot2docker, set set the env like:

    env | grep DOCKER

    Hope for your help, thanks!

    Try adding DOCKER_OPTS into your env, this works well in Ubuntu OS.


    Another way is install the crt in your client. When you setup your owner registry, you create the key/crt on the registry host.

    mkdir -p certs && openssl req \
    -newkey rsa:4096 -nodes -sha256 -keyout certs/domain.key \
    -x509 -days 365 -out certs/domain.crt

    And you start a container with registry image and the key/crt on the registry host.

    docker run -d -p 5000:5000 --restart=always --name gcregistry \
    -v /registry/data:/var/lib/registry \
    -v /registry/certs:/certs \
    -e REGISTRY_HTTP_TLS_CERTIFICATE=/certs/domain.crt \
    -e REGISTRY_HTTP_TLS_KEY=/certs/domain.key \

    To access the CA, install the crt on the client. The you can pull from the https

    scp certs/domain.crt /etc/docker/certs.d/
    restart docker
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
