docker login error

I’m trying to log in to and keep getting an error.

What I’ve done:

Then I try to login using:

docker login
Username: $oauthtoken

The response I get is:

Error response from daemon: Get proxyconnect tcp: tls: oversized record received with length 20527

If I do not properly set up http-proxy.conf I get a timeout error instead. This makes me think that a connection is being made but still somehow failing.

Any suggestions are appreciated.



I suspect you are correct that you are dealing with a network / proxy issue. Unfortunately, troubleshooting that remotely is more than what we can do on this forum.

The proxy works for literally everything else on my machine. There’s seriously nothing anybody can recommend I try in terms of configuring nvidia-docker correctly to use it?

In case anybody else runs into this issue, here’s what I did to solve it (following advice from

I created /etc/systemd/system/docker.service.d/proxy.conf with the following three lines:


Notice that the HTTPS_PROXY points to an address of the form http:// rather than https://

I can’t say I understand why this is the case. Everything else on my system that needs and HTTPS_PROXY set uses an https:// address for the proxy server.

After you’ve created this file, perform the following to reload the daemon configuration and restart docker:

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl restart docker.service
