EtherNet/IP Docker

You can run the XRT EtherNet/IP Device Service in a docker container.

The following examples use the iotechsys/xrt:2.0 docker image.

You can run the XRT docker container on either of the following networks:

  • Host
  • Docker bridge

Run on Host Network

In the following example xrt-ethernetip provides the name of the running container, provides the location of the config, state and profiles folders. [time_in_seconds] can optionally define the time for which XRT is to run in seconds:

docker run --rm --network=host --name xrt-ethernetip -v <deployment_directory>/deployment:/opt/iotech/xrt/deployment iotechsys/xrt:2.0 [time_in_seconds]

Run on Docker Bridge Network

In the following example command the network flag is set to <docker_bridge_network>, which provides the docker bridge network to which to connect, xrt-ethernetip provides the name of the running container, <config_directory> provides the location of the config folder, and [time_in_seconds] can optionally define the time for which XRT is to run in seconds:

docker run --rm --name xrt-ethernetip -v <deployment_directory>/deployment:/opt/iotech/xrt/deployment \
    --network <docker_bridge_network> iotechsys/xrt:2.0 [timeout in secs]

Note

If the network flag is not included in the command, the default bridge network is used.
