Here's the thing, I need to tell Docker to not containerize the container’s networking, because it needs to connect to a MongoDB that is inside a VPN (enterprise private DB).
There is a Docker command that let's me do exactly that: --net=host. Reference here.
So, for example, when running the container on my local machine, I will do something like:
docker run --rm -it --net=host [image-name]:[version] bash -il
And that command will do the trick. Thanks to that, I can connect to the "private" MongoDB.
So, my question is: Is there a way customize the docker run command of a Single Docker Environment on Elastic Beanstalk so I can add the --net=host?
I have tried using the container_commands into the config.yml file to add that instruction there, but I don't think that does what I need, here is a snippet:
command: bundle exec thin --net=host
command: "docker run --rm -it --net=host [image-name]:[version] bash -il"
