Getting Docker to work with a proxy server

  1. Proxy for the command line
  2. Proxy for apt
  3. Proxy for Docker daemon
  4. Proxy for Docker build and Docker Compose

Proxy for the command line

  • http_proxy, HTTP_PROXY — proxy server for HTTP Traffic
  • https_proxy, HTTPS_PROXY — proxy server for HTTPS traffic
  • ftp_proxy, FTP_PROXY — proxy server for FTP traffic
  • no_proxy, NO_PROXY — comma separated patterns for IP addresses or domain names that shouldn’t use the proxy. It is a good idea to add at least localhost and 127.0.0.1 to noproxy list.

Proxy for apt

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://proxy.server:port";
Acquire::https::Proxy "http://proxy.server:port";

Proxy for Docker daemon

[Service]
Environment="HTTP_PROXY=http://proxy.server:port"
Environment="HTTPS_PROXY=http://proxy.server:port"
Environment="NO_PROXY=localhost,127.0.0.1"
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl restart docker

Proxy for Docker build and Docker Compose

{
"proxies":
{
"default":
{
"httpProxy": "http://proxy.server:port",
"httpsProxy": "http://proxy.server:port",
"noProxy": "localhost,127.0.0.1"
}
}
}
