IPTables error while starting Docker containers inside Whonix Workstation


I am having issues running Docker containers inside my Whonix Workstation.
These containers are not supposed to be external, and should really only work within the Whonix Workstation.

I get the error below when I try to run docker compose up -d

Error response from daemon: driver failed programming external connectivity on endpoint redis (68df141f3bb30daa3de983bcdb70d0ca9af2fbca248e8d09de17ab9cb4bd088b): (iptables failed: iptables --wait -t nat -A DOCKER -p tcp -d 0/0 --dport 6379 -j DNAT --to-destination ! -i br-42ff7eb55c79: iptables: No chain/target/match by that name.

I am not really an IPTables expert, but I was thinking it was related to the Whonix way of doing the networking.

Any suggestions?

I don’t know where this network interface name is coming from. Not from Whonix.

Seems more of a syntax error than firewall package rejection error.

Therefore I think the problem cause is probably somewhere in the software you try to run and not inside Whonix.
