Hi NAMEWITHELD12

"how do I create a custom docker bridge ?"

To configure your custom docker bridge configure it with a fixed address, tell Docker to use it. Done.

If you do it manually, it will look like this (on Ubuntu):

stop docker
ip link add br0 type bridge
ip addr add 172.30.1.1/20 dev br0
ip link set br0 up
docker -d -b br0
