How do I join the bridge to my network permanently

Post by Littlefoot » Wed May 20, 2020 2:09 pm

I can't figure out how to access zoneminder or give it permanent access to my network. I can locally use Firefox https://172.17.0.1:8443/zm/ but that's it.

I tried many things and many web pages but it's best to say I have absolutely no idea.

Well, I have to admit it's been a complete and total waste of time with 0% learning curve other than Docker being a pipe dream. Where I thought I was the problem, it's actually Docker that's the problem. Nothing wrong with my setup until Docker was introduced resulting on randomly breaking the networking for the PC.

I tried multiple ways and managed to get it to work. However on reboot or slight config change and Docker F**cks the network again or get it to work, reboot and it's f**cked again. As an example I can ping out to clients on the network but not ping into the Zoneminder PC. Long long long story short noticed that if the docker0 bridge exists on boot up the wired network will most likely fail easily checked by ping from another PC. Deleted the docker0 bridge multiple times and now on boot it seems to have gotten the hint to F'Off until needed. For the moment on boot it's not there until ZM is started and it works but unfortunately it gives zero confidence of reliability.

I'll leave this here for any other masochists:

I'm using Mint Cinnamon 19.3 so If you encounter the problem I did with network access try the following:
Panel > Network Icon > Network connections:
Bridge > docker0 > click on it and at the bottom click on the minus sign to delete it.
Ethernet > do the same delete it.

In both cases they where recreated instantly
Do not change any settings, even giving the PC a static IP gives docker permission to break things so allocate one from your router > reboot
After reboot (Do not start anything) check to make sure docker0 is not present. If it is
delete again and reboot.
You need a reboot where the docker0 is not present until after you start ZM.
Once you started ZM then you can check with either of the addresses below:
Docker direct: https://172.17.0.1:8443/zm
PC or Network: https://<Your Pc's Ip Address>:8443/zm
