Port mapping in Docker on Mac OSX installed with Docker Toolbox

I installed Docker on a Mac using the Docker Toolbox.

I opened Docker Quickstart Terminal and ran

  • No such file or directory in docker build
  • fail to link redis container to node.js container in docker
  • How do I use Liblas in python in docker without error?
  • openstack all in one environment, instance can't access service running in docker container
  • Docker run syntax
  • cv2.VideoCapture doesn't work within docker container
  • docker run hello-world

    That works fine.

    Then I tried:

    docker run -d -p 8080:80 nginx

    I can see that the container is added. docker log with the container id returns nothing but I think that’s normal?

    When I browse to localhost:8080 with chrome I don’t see the nginx welcome page. I’ve tried running a few different containers that are supposed to serve traffic but none of them have worked. The existing github issues and SO questions all seem to be talking about things which don’t exist anymore – or at least are not default on Mac OSX.

  • should I create a VM and then use docker machine inside the VM for development
  • Docker Wordpress CPU jumps when selecting featured image
  • Dockerfile with multiple images
  • docker ubuntu container filesystem
  • Docker container cannot access network
  • Docker: Do I need to rebuild the container from scratch whenever I need to add software?

    localhost is not the host where your docker is running. You need to go to the IP address of your running docker daemon.

    To find the IP address for your docker machine, run the command:

    docker-machine ip default

    where default is the name of your VM (as is the case I think for most installations).

    If that command returned something like, then you can reach your running docker container and it’s exposed port like this:

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