Multi Host : Docker Networking

Say we have two hosts, how docker containers can connect to each other in this Docker cluster if both interfaces:

  • docker0
  • docker_gwbridge

have the same IP address in each host ?

  • Can I expose a Docker port to another Docker only (and not the host)?
  • Problems connecting pycharm to remote interpreter via docker
  • How to use volumes-from in marathon
  • replicas of a service in docker swarm remain 0/1 forever
  • Is possible to deploy existing app to Docker
  • Docker Swarm that uses just nodes? [duplicate]
  • Not able to execute RUN commands in Dockerfile
  • Why does boot2docker ip fail?
  • How to get data from docker container into shared folder at host?

  • Docker container don`t work in detached mode, although works OK in attached one
  • Bash variable inside third remote server

    Those networks are bridge networks that only exist on a single docker host. Containers assigned to only these networks will not be able to talk to containers on other hosts.

    Multi-host networking is done with an “overlay” network and will show up with that driver instead of “bridge”. The overlay driver relies on a global key/value store, such as consul, etcd, and it’s now built into swarm with the raft backend. Assigning IP’s is done by referencing this global key/value store so they should always be unique.
