Docker Desktop Caveats

Docker Desktop rewrites the source address for packets flowing out of container networks under some conditions. This can cause routing loops and other hard to debug connectivity issues with Firezone. We recommend only using Docker Server for Linux for production deployments.

Non-Linux Platform Caveats

Only Docker for Linux supports the host networking mode, so macOS and Windows platforms will be able unable to properly attribute client source address for HTTP requests. This means any IP-based throttling or logging in your chosen proxy (caddy by default) will be ineffective, since the source IP will always be the Docker-side host IP (typically 172.X.0.1).

Egress rules operate on the tunneled client IP address and aren't affected by this limitation.
