Stuck trying to figure out what’s up with
your containers, as they cannot seem to be
able to access the network?
Well, that happened to a few of us at
Namshi in the
past couple of days.
The good news is that you can clearly verify
that something is just wrong with Docker by
simply pinging google.com from your host
and a simple container:
$ ping google.com
PING google.com (18.104.22.168) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 22.214.171.124: icmp_req=1 ttl=56 time=11.1 ms
64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_req=2 ttl=56 time=13.2 ms
$ docker run -ti ubuntu ping google.com
# BLACK HOLE
If you happen to get stuck in this kind of
situation, you might want to look into what
DNS server Docker is actually using to let
your containers resolve onto the internet.
In our case, we realized our firewall was
acting pretty weirdly with Google’s public
DNSes (188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206), which happen
to be the default ones Docker is gonna use in
case you don’t have anything custom specified
in your resolv.conf and so on.
The issue, overall, was quite easy to circumvent,
as we just told docker to use OpenDNS in our
# Docker Upstart and SysVinit configuration file
# Use DOCKER_OPTS to modify the daemon startup options.
DOCKER_OPTS="--dns 220.127.116.11 --dns 18.104.22.168"
Then, you will only need to restart the Docker
demon and everything should be fine:
$ sudo service docker restart
docker start/running, process 26999
$ docker run ubuntu ping google.com
PING google.com (22.214.171.124) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_seq=1 ttl=55 time=11.4 ms
64 bytes from 188.8.131.52: icmp_seq=2 ttl=55 time=11.2 ms
Hope this helps! To be honest we’ve googled
around and found out that there might be someother,
issues that might cause the problem, so I’d
really hope yours is just as silly as the one
