In this case, I run a geth node in local env, and A app in docker, How can I connect to geth from docker?

  • what kind of app are you running in docker ? What's the command you use to launch get and which protocole you want to communicate with ? – M. Riggi Nov 29 '18 at 11:03
  • Thx for replying! I run geth locally in this way: geth --identity testNode --rpc --rpcport 8545 --rpccorsdomain * --datadir ethereum_private_testnet --port 30303 --nodiscover --rpcapi personal,db,eth,net,web3 --networkid 100 , and then I run a python app in docker, I use ethjsonrpc lib, like this ``` >>> from ethjsonrpc import EthJsonRpc # to use Parity-specific methods, import ParityEthJsonRpc >>> c = EthJsonRpc('', 8545) >>> c.net_version() ``` , BTW, I can run it in Mac successfully, but in Linux, it can't work – Junbao Wang Nov 30 '18 at 6:09

Default rpc address for geth is set to localhost. You can see which ip and port is used on linux with a tool like netstat, default should be .

You can specify the server listening interface with this command --rpcaddr

  • Yes, I . specified the rpc interface with --rpcaddr, like: geth --identity "testNode" --rpc --rpcaddr "" --rpcport "8545" --rpccorsdomain "*" --datadir $datadir --port "30303" --nodiscover --rpcapi "personal,db,eth,net,web3,admin,txpool,miner" --networkid 100 --mine --etherbase "0xf6de496ec5601d74937ddd77af09c8cd4ba41ab5", but it doesn't work – Junbao Wang Jan 3 '19 at 7:00
