Interacting with containers on MedStack Control


Containers are instances of Docker services running in MedStack Control clusters. They can communicate in an unencrypted protocol between each other securely because all Docker network traffic is encrypted by Docker's overlay network.

The most common interaction with containers is to open a secure shell into a container using MedStack Control's web terminal.


When a container is running, you can open a web terminal in MedStack Control to SSH into the service container and communicate with resources connected to the service and other services in the Docker network.

To open a web terminal to shell into a container, click the Shell button for a container in the service containers section of the service details page.
