It's the ip address of the machine you're running the docker on. The docker instance has the same ip address as the host, because you're running it with '--network host'

I didn't want to complicate matters by separating ip ranges between the docker and the server if it is not really necessary.
The SGI machine should be on the same subnet as the PC: I chose for the PC running the docker and for the SGI machine, but you can use any ip range and network, also 10.x.x.x
So just to check is this an ok server boot command?

sudo docker run --sysctl net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range="2048 32767" --sysctl net.ipv4.ip_no_pmtu_disc=1 --network host --add-host iris: --volume /home/cameron/dist:/DIST:ro --volume $HOME/bootptab:/etc/bootptab -P -it dexter1/irix-install

My octane cant connect to the server as of right now for whatever reason.

That should get your docker server running, but what is your bootptab? And what ip address is your server connected to the network?
Check also the netaddr env of the octane prom
