Installing Docker CE on Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS / 17.10

Use the commands below to install Docker CE and enable “br_netfilter” (bridge netfilter module) to ensure that ICC functions as expected on Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS and 17.10:

# Install and configure Docker CE
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install \
 linux-image-extra-$(uname -r) \

sudo apt-get install \
 apt-transport-https \
 ca-certificates \
 curl \

curl -fsSL | sudo apt-key add -

sudo add-apt-repository \
 "deb [arch=amd64] \
 $(lsb_release -cs) \

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install docker-ce
sudo systemctl enable docker

# Enable br_netfilter/ iptables filtering on Docker bridge interfaces
sudo vi /etc/modules-load.d/bridge.conf:


sudo vi /etc/sysctl.d/bridge.conf:

   net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-ip6tables = 1
   net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-iptables = 1
   net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-arptables = 1

sudo sysctl net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-iptables=1
sudo sysctl net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-ip6tables=1
sudo sysctl net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-arptables=1

sudo systemctl restart docker
