Docker image irserver

Postby ihomeautomate » Sun 24. Dec 2017, 13:31

I'm in the process of migrating my windows setup to a mac mini setup. Part of this migration is irserver. I'm hoping to get this part of the setup done within a docker container.

My (current) setup:
- IRTrans Ethernet IRDB (2010)
- IRTrans Server running on a windows machine, having many remotes/commands defined and connected to the IRTrans Ethernet device

... hoping to be able to migrate to:
- IRTrans Ethernet IRDB (2010)
- IRTrans Server running on a Mac Mini, having many remotes/commands defined and connected to the IRTrans Ethernet device

I recently started playing with irserver in a docker container on the Mac Mini. See github repository (https://github.com/ihomeautomate/irserver) for dockerfile.

I'm able to start the container as
Code: Select all
docker run -p 8081:8081 -p 21000:21000 -p 21000:21000/udp -it --rm ihomeautomate/irserver -timestamp -http_port 8081 -loglevel 4 <irtrans ethernet device ip>


Within the container, irserver tries to locate the irtrans ethernet device, and with output:

AFAIK it can reach the ethernet device, but unfortunately it thinks the ethernet device IP address is 172.17.0.1, which is some internal docker networking bridge address, and certainly not the original <irtrans ethernet device ip> parameter. When trying to actually execute an IR command, it'll never happen since 172.17.0.1 doesn't reach the actual hardware device.

Some help would be greatly appreciated, I'm sure if this would actually work, we can document this for the irtrans community to benefit from.
