Docker image doesn't expose ports in custom image


(Rafael Simonelli) #1

I'm working with a custom image and I want to expose some of container's ports. But when I run my image in Rancher and execute "nmap " from another service in the same host, it reaches the service but no ports are avaible. Other services are normal, with their ports exposed just like defined in Dockerfile. Logstash also runs normally.

I've added the line above to the service in docker compose, but to no effect:

    - 5000:5000/tcp

Here's my Dockerfile and my logstash.yml. What am I doing wrong, please?

# Dockerfile

RUN rm -f /usr/share/logstash/pipeline/logstash.conf
COPY logstash.conf /usr/share/logstash/pipeline/logstash.conf

RUN rm -f /usr/share/logstash/config/logstash.yml
COPY logstash.yml /usr/share/logstash/config/logstash.yml

EXPOSE 5000	

# logstash.yml ""
http.port: 9600

Are you sure Logstash is even running on port 5000? Please add your logstash.conf and the relevant section from your logs (when Logstash is starting up).

Hi Rafael,

Please share your logstash.conf so we can see what you are trying to do.

Here are the requested files (with some minor changes after some tests). Thanks in advance!

Cool. Thanks for the extra info.

Your Logstash configuration is explicitly binding the HTTP input to a loopback address. A lot of people think that this means it's bound to the loopback interface on the host system that's running Docker. It's not though. The container, unless told otherwise, is running in its own network namespace. It has its own loopback interface and any 127.* address in the container belongs to it alone. Every other container, and the host system, each has its own completely separate version of the 127.* address space.

If you remove the explicit bind to, then Logstash will listen on all the container's interfaces ( Then, other containers and the host system will be able to talk to it.

(Toby McLaughlin) #6

For more context, consider the interfaces on a very basic container:

» docker run --rm -it alpine ip addr
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN qlen 1000
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet scope host lo
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
879: eth0@if880: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP,M-DOWN> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UP
    link/ether 02:42:ac:11:00:02 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet brd scope global eth0
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

Just like an actual host, it has a loopback interface and a "real" interface, eth0. Any traffic coming from somewhere else needs to come in eth0, not lo.

Great! That worked! Thanks for the help!
