When adding a container definition, there is an option under the “Networking” tab for a Network option… and one option is “Container.” I don’t see any documentation for this under the Networking section?
With the network set to container a container will share the network stack of another container.
For more details, please check: https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/run/#network-settings (Section Network: container)
Is there a reason I’m not seeing this option?
Possibly because it only applies to standalone containers, not services?
Good call, thanks. Is there a way to use the compose “network_mode: container” option to share the networking stack of an infrastructure container, or one in a different stack?
I could never get
network_mode: container to work in a rancher config, when the exact same setting would work when executed directly on the docker host.
Moreover there are references to the elusive
network_mode: service but neither of them are documented. Guidance would be appreciated.
