Using docker behind a proxy

# systemctl edit docker.service

Enter the next three lines and save:


Restart docker:

# systemctl restart docker.service

Some useful aliases

I put this in my ~/.bash_aliases to maintain a check_mk container:

alias omd-log='docker container logs monitoring'
alias omd-recreate-volume='docker volume create --driver local --opt type=nfs --opt o=addr=nfs.server.tld,rw --opt device=:/share monitoring'
alias omd-root='docker container exec -it $(docker ps --filter name=monitoring -q) /bin/bash'
alias omd-cmk='docker container exec -it -u omd monitoring bash'
alias omd-start='docker container run --rm -dit -p 8080:5000 --tmpfs /omd/sites/omd/tmp:uid=1000,gid=1000 --ulimit nofile=1024 -v monitoring:/omd/sites --name monitoring -e CMK_SITE_ID=omd -e MAIL_RELAY_HOST='\''smtp-gw.server.tld'\'' -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro checkmk/check-mk-raw:1.6.0p12'
alias omd-stop='docker stop $(docker ps --filter name=monitoring -q)'

Setting some defaults


  "insecure-registries" : [""],
  "data-root": "/docker-data/",
  "default-address-pools": [
      "scope": "local",
      "base": "",
      "size": 24
  "log-driver": "json-file",
  "log-opts": {
    "max-size": "2m",
    "max-file": "10"
