if you don't define an specified port like -p 80:80 but do it like -p 80 , docker will provide different port each time the container is restarted and each time you need to check what is the port that docker is using for the container .

update container to make sure the last security update was installed plus I add some others packages ..libnet-snmp-perl, python-netsnmp and snmp-mibs-downloader.

It would be nice if the image installs libnet-snmp-perl as well. Maybe even python-netsnmp too and snmp-mibs-downloader.
