Docker: How to recreate additional iptables rules for dockers?

advertisements

When the docker-demon starts it adds a couple of rules to iptables. When all rules are deleted via iptables -F i have to stop and restart the docker demo to re-create dockers rules.

Is there a way to have docker re-add it's additional rules?


the best way is to restart your docker service, then it'll re-add your docker rules to iptables. (on deb-based: sudo service docker restart)

however, if you just want to restore those rules without restarting your service, i saved mine so you can inspect, and adjust it to work for you, then load using sudo iptables-restore ./iptables-docker-ports.backup

edit and save this to ./iptables-docker-ports.backup
