Run elasticsearch with docker

I am new with elasticsearch so pardon me if my question is stupid. I am try to run it with docker. After i pulled elasticsearch image from docker hub, i ran it with command:

docker run -p 9200:9200 -p 9300:9300 --name=ES elasticsearch

    I try pass the network.publish_host setting directly on the command line with --network.publish_host= (as @Val mentioned) but it still not working. Here the log:

    $ docker run -p 9200:9200 -p 9300:9300 --name=ES elasticsearch  --network.publish_host=

    Since the OP is using Mac, the port 9200 needs to be port forwarded (with boot2docker or with docker machine) at the VM (VirtualBox) level.

    VBoxManage controlvm "boot2docker-vm" --natpf1 "tcp-port9200 ,tcp,,9200,,9200"
    VBoxManage controlvm "boot2docker-vm" --natpf1 "udp-port9200 ,udp,,9200,,$9200

    (controlvm if the VM is running, modifyvm is the VM is stopped)

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