This will have more content added to it in the future.

Here we make use of an docker macvlan network and assign a IP to the container. We also mount Samba SMB resources using the local driver to the docker container. Using these CIFS and normal volume resources, we map their Volumes into the Transmission Torrent docker container.

For the volume stanza I did use the “long form syntax” or “long syntax”.

The external network used in this ‘docker-compose.yml’ file would look like the following. Please note the MTU specification as that might not be what you are intending but if you need it, this might be one of three blog posts showing its use.

docker network create dockerdmz01 \
    --driver=macvlan \
    --subnet=192.168.1.32/27 \
    --gateway=192.168.1.33 \

    --attachable \

    -o com.docker.network.mtu=9000
