I would like to see a section on how to use docker when working behind a corporate firewall that requires a proxy to be used for http/https traffic. Getting the docker server to access sites through the proxy is fairly straightforward (just add HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY lines to /etc/sysconfig/docker -- for CentOS/RHEL/Fedora) but that isn't used when building a Docker container and it doesn't enable containers to work through the proxy without having to embed proxy information into the Dockerfile (which is clearly undesirable). This prevents users behind such a firewall from building docker containers so this is a significant issue which should be addressed in the book.

Hi Christopher,

Thanks very much for the suggestion!

This was indeed one of the problems I had when starting to use Docker in $corp. A later section will talk about --dns, and we'll be sure to mention proxies etc, as you say.

Keep it coming!

Ian
