A transparent socks proxy for Docker.
If you are running Docker behind a corporate http proxy, you probably know how annoying it is
having to configure the proxy in every container.
You can run this container instead to just forget it and let docker run as if you had a direct connection
to the outside world.
This container is based on the munkyboy / redsocks one.
It runs entirely from inside the container.
/!\ BEWARE! THIS CONTAINER MODIFIES THE IPTABLES RULES FOR THE docker0 INTERFACE ON THE HOST MACHINE!!!
PLEASE READ THE EXPLANATIONS BELOW AND MAKE SURE TO EXIT IT CLEANLY OR TO RUN THE STOP COMMAND TO RESET YOUR RULES
How it works
All network connections coming out of the docker0 interface will automatically be proxified.
The container interprets the environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy to configure the socks proxy.
How to use it
docker run -ti --net=host --privileged -e http_proxy=http://myproxy:3128 -e https_proxy=http://myproxy:3128 klabs/forgetproxy
It is recommended to let the container run in the foreground as it is configured to intercept the CTRL+C and clean
the iptables rules on exit.
If you have your container running, just press CTRL+C.
If you need to manually clean the iptables rules that are set by the container, you can run the following command
until you get an error telling you the rules do no exist.
docker run --net=host --privileged klabs/forgetproxy stop
