“Connection reset by peer docker” error

Usually when a Container/Pod running in Docker/Kubernetes retrieves data from external services, connection reset problem could happen.

Depending on what tool you use (curl, browser, etc.), you may get a different error.

The result is same. Your web server will not return back the page you expect.


What causes “Connection reset by peer docker” error?

The error might occur because your web server is bound to localhost which means it is available inside of your container.

Check if the server application is configure to only listen to requests coming from its “localhost”.

This check depends on type of server that you are using.

Check by starting your container by running the following:

docker run --network host -d yourimagename

Then try to curl, if that works, then you will just need to review your server listening IP setting.

curl localhost:10009

Replace “10009” with the appropriate port number.


How to resolve it?
