Hyper-V Containers - can't access IP address of containers via other hosts on the LAN

Last Modified: 2018-05-24
I created two Hyper-V IIS containers via the commands noted below.  Each has their own static IP address.  I can pin each of these on the Windows Container / Hyper-V host but unable to via any hosts on the same LAN.  I think it's due to my vSwitch setup.  Any ideas?

docker network create -d transparent --subnet= --gateway= TransparentNet3
docker run -d --name myIIS --network=TransparentNet3 --ip --isolation=hyperv microsoft/iis
docker run -d --name myIIS2 --network=TransparentNet3 --ip --isolation=hyperv microsoft/iis
