Using Networks

With the release of Docker 1.9 you can now manage custom networks.

Here you can see how to create a network named network1 using the bridge driver

docker_client.create_network("network1", driver="bridge")

You can also create more advanced networks with custom IPAM configurations. For example, setting the subnet to 192.168.52.0/24 and gateway to 192.168.52.254


ipam_config = docker.utils.create_ipam_config(subnet='192.168.52.0/24', gateway='192.168.52.254')

docker_client.create_network("network1", driver="bridge", ipam=ipam_config)
