First, we need a config

To get started, you will need to create a S3 config file that contains the account credentials. There are a few ways to do this.

  • By adding an account in the GUI from your local machine. The config file will be saved as s3.config in your home directory. Add that file to /root in the Docker image so you can use Cloud Explorer.

  • Create /root/s3.config manually in the container. The format for the file is:

  • If using the CLI in interactive mode, you can specify environment variables: (ACCESS_KEY, SECRET_KEY, ENDPOINT, and REGION)

    docker run -it --net=host -e ACCESS_KEY='****' -e SECRET_KEY='***' -e ENDPOINT='' -e REGION='default' rusher81572/cloudexplorer bash

Accessing the GUI with VNC

Here is how to run the container in the background using the IP address of the Docker host.

docker run -d --net=host rusher81572/cloudexplorer 

Now you can use a VNC client such as vncviewer to connect to display #1.

vncviewer docker_host_ip:1

The default password for VNC is 123456. You should see the Cloud Explorer GUI after authentication.
