Linux VM with docker

We make available a minimal Alpine Linux virtual machine with docker and sshd installed ready to be imported in Virtualbox.

  1. Import the appliance in Virtualbox (File->Import Appliance, accept default configuration)
  2. Run the machine in headless mode (Machine->Start->Headless Start)
    IMPORTANT: if you get an error since vboxnet0 does not exists, you need to create it: go to File->Host Network Manager and create vboxnet0 then try to start the machine again
  3. Wait that the machine boots and then connect via ssh with ssh docker@192.168.56.105 password docker (same as root password)
  4. Run your preferred docker images

Note: feel free of changing the user and root password if you wish and add you preferred Alpine packages!

Enjoy!
