Ok, quick response back, but I think I am still stuck.  `oc cluster up` provides a `--forward-ports` option, but that requires socat which windows apparently doesnt have: "Error: socat tunnel not supported on windows".  I think this means I am stuck, since as I mentioned before my corporate VPN steals ALL of the routes.  So trying to access the openshift container via the standard process:

    Starting OpenShift using openshift/origin:v3.6.0 ...
    OpenShift server started.

    The server is accessible via web console at:
        https://10.0.75.2:8443

would require hitting 10.0.75.2 which would get sent through the VPN instead of to my VMSwitch...

The truth is, i did not even know about this option.  Feels a bit like dockerception, but after running `oc cluster up` it looks like it may work.  I will add more once I have had a chance to use it for a while.  Thanks for the pointer, and I will continue to wait for the NAT/npipe features :)

Hi Lucas,


First, thanks for the heads-up, but also providing these insights.

NAT support for Hyper-V is high on my to-do list, and from your
explanation, I get a better picture on how it should work, but mostly
why we have to do this.

I have brought this up inside the team, and we will discuss this
coming Monday about this topic. Hopefully I can provide a roadmap
after this on short notice.

Have you tried to deploy OpenShift using `oc cluster up` on the
MobyLinuxVM image? I am wondering, as this is not something I have
tried myself. We have a task/idea to deploy on an existing Docker
daemon:

  * https://github.com/minishift/minishift/issues/392
  * https://github.com/minishift/minishift/issues/1229

Would like your thoughts on this.

Anyways, I hope to have some good news soon.

regards,


Gerard
