how to configure docker with floating ip?

Hi Guys,

On my Droplet, let’s say

i have IP ADDRESS: X.X.X.99 I assign a new floating IP address like: X.X.X.100

I would like to run two docker container like that

docker run --name mynginx1 -p X.X.X.99:80:80 nginx docker run --name mynginx2 -p X.X.X.100:80:80 nginx

The second command is not working so far.

What should i do to make it work?

Thank you!

When using the Floating IP, the droplet is assigned an Anchor IP, which is the IP you should listen to. Read more about Anchor IP here - and how to retrieve it:
