I’m quite new to the whole home-assistant running in docker for Mac thing…
I figured out that het HomeKit component dousn’t function on the Home-assistant on docker for Mac installation due to how docker for Mac is constructed… (docker environment is as I understand a Virtual Machine on its own) due to this and the restrictions on network interfacing trough this VM to the Mac environment the
—net=host command dousn’t function because that links to the VM network in between docker and the Mac host.
I’m trying to get my head around this problem and try to figure out a solution. So any thoughts or feedback are more than welcome!
The thoughts running in my head at the moment are to use the VPN passtrough to let the docker environment connect to a VPN socket on my Sophos UTM and let it join my main automation network from there.
This so HomeKit and the auto discovery are directly looking in the Automation network environment.
Call me crazy i’m definitely not an expert on this matter so please any feedback or thoughts are more then welcome!
