  1. I watched your video.
    It is helpful indeed but I am stuck (3:23 in your video)

    I am unable to get the IP and port as the one you show.
    Please can you elaborate on that part.
    The ‘ls’ command is reported as an invalid command

    But I am using Docker CE for Windows (and so have that Whale icon in the system tray) and in terminal window can run commands like
    1. docker version,
    2. docker container (note not plural – which is reported as invalid)
    3. docker run hello-world

    thank you
