To set up a docker host/Docker Engine, refer to

In this tutorial, a Docker Engine has already been set up in a Linux server (suppose its IP address and port number are

Write down this information as it will be required when you build the ServerAPIs project as a docker image (in the later section Publishing Web APIs to Docker).

Step 2: Make sure the docker host machine can connect to the following Appeon sites (through port number 80): and (or and (for validating the PowerServer license).

If the docker host machine connects to Internet via a proxy server, refer to Configure Docker to use a proxy server for detailed instructions.
