Unable to ping Flux LED device from HA host

I’ve got HA installed via the docker image, and I’m having an issue getting it to detect a flux_led component.

I can control the strip via the Magichome app no problem, and I have had this strip configured in HA before, but that was on an old Raspberry Pi that released it’s magic smoke.

The odd thing is I am unable to ping this devices IP address from the dicker host that run HA, I CAN ping it from a laptop on the same LAN. The host is wired & the laptop is wireless. I can ping the laptop from the host server, and vice versa. The only thing that doesn’t seem to be working is pinging the strip controller from the HA host, and therefore I assume that’s why HA can’t see it.
