ShinyProxy + External DB

Hello to all,

I use shinyproxy to serve applications in Rshiny. The applications have to connect to a local database. However, I have not found a way to connect directly to the host machine. So I tried to dockerize the db and create a network and used the docker.internal-networking: true and container-network-connections: my-network for each app.

Would you have any solutions to either connect directly from shinyproxy to my local db or to fix the db solution in a docker + network.

Thanks :slight_smile:


how you have tried to access local database on host machine? Have you tried to use IP address of host machine?
