Services running on Docker get internal IP addresses in the form of 172.18.0.x or 172.17.0.x. For instance, currently my PMS has been assigned 172.18.0.6 and the rest is in 172.17.0.x. This is the address used by Tautulli to watch on the Plex Server.

However, it seems that this internal IP regularly changes (at each restart I would guess) and Tautulli has to be told the new address in order to connect to PMS.

Is there a way to assign a fixed address to PMS to avoid this issue? Or is there another way to keep Tautulli connected?

Finally got it working.

I had to leave the network called "bridge" in the container details for tautulli, in order to leave only the network "plexguide", the one to which plex is connected..

"bridge" is 172.17.0.x and "plexguide" is 172.18.0.x
