Docker Desktop for Windows is Docker designed to run on Windows 10. It is a native Windows application that provides an easy-to-use development environment for building, shipping, and running dockerized apps. Docker Desktop for Windows uses Windows-native Hyper-V virtualization and networking and is the fastest and most reliable way to develop Docker apps on Windows. 

System Requirements

  • Windows 10 64-bit: Pro, Enterprise, or Education (Build 15063 or later).
  • Hyper-V and Containers Windows features must be enabled.

To check your Windows version, go to Command Prompt and type winver. Virtualization support feature can be checked under Task Manager > CPU Performance (this option should be enabled by default).

Download and install Docker Desktop executable for Windows. 

When the installation finishes, Docker starts automatically. The "whale" icon
in the notification area indicates that Docker is running, and accessible from a terminal.

  1. Log in to your router and navigate to the NAT and Port Mapping/Forwarding section. Map the necessary custom port(s) from router to your local machine: [YOUR_PUBLIC_IP]:25007 to -> [YOUR_LOCAL_NETWORK_IP]:25007. Your local machine should be publicly exposed via router.
  2. Open a command-line terminal and type the following command (previously mapped port=25007 is used for the example below):
docker run --cap-add NET_ADMIN -p 4449:4449 -p 25007:25007/udp --rm --name myst -v ~/.mysterium:/var/lib/mysterium-node mysteriumnetwork/myst --experiment-natpunching=false service --agreed-terms-and-conditions --openvpn.port=25007

 Your Windows Docker node is now ready to serve Mysterium Network users!
