How to force docker-machine to use private IP instead public

August 3, 2018 461 views


I'm using GitLab runners in autoscale mode with DigitalOcean.
I notice that GitLab runner by using Docker Machine use Public IP instead Private.
I precise --digitalocean-private-networking option, but it changes nothing.

When I docker-machine inspect my-machine I saw "PrivateNetworking": true but "IPAddress" is a public one.

Does this the normal behavior? Does this could be changed?

I'd like to know this too. Currently, I'm having to allow all 2376/tcp traffic from anywhere in the world through my firewall, and I'd really rather not. Can I force docker-machine to use the internal IP?
