  • subnet:
  • gateway:
  • interface name: eth0

Use ssh to login Synology, and run docker network create -d macvlan --subnet= --gateway= --ip-range= -o parent=eth0 lomorage to create lomorage network. After that, if you run docker network ls, you should see the new docker network

Go to Synology docker web page, click Network tab from sidebar, the lomorage network should show up now.
