Problems with forge tunnel

Hello everyone, 

I am very new to Atlassian Forge and am currently trying to develop an app using Forge.

For the installation, I have followed the instructions on this page:


I am able to deploy and install the app on my local instance but unfortunately I am running into the following error when using forge tunnel.


Checking Docker image... 100%
Your Docker image is up to date.
docker: Error response from daemon: invalid IP address in add-host: "host-gateway".
See 'docker run --help'.

Forge tunnel initially worked but all of a sudden it stopped working (without me changing anything).


What I've tried already:

  • Uninstalling and reinstalling forge/npm/node
  • Starting/restarting docker
  • Deleting the forge tunnel image and re-downloading it again. 
  • Upgrading forge tunnel

Versions used:

  • Node: 12.22.1
  • Ubuntu: 18.04.2 
  • npm: 7.16.0
  • Docker: 20.10.2
  • Forge: 1.4.0


Thanks in advance!

do you have found an answer? I am facing the same issue.

I am using forge/docker inside a linux vm on a windows host.


Hello @Gernot Grames

unfortunately I have not been able to fix the problem yet. 

I also wrote a post on the Atlassian Developer Community and got some hints:


Maybe that could help you :) 


Actually, I think, it is a problem with the docker.

Anyway, remove && install every time solve this issue for me...

Sometimes it needs to install twice  (remove && install && install) :)

I don't know why but it works )

sudo apt-get remove docker-ce docker-ce-cli
sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli
sudo apt-get install docker-ce docker-ce-cli

Docker 20.10.7
Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS
