A copy of my reply from stackoverflow:
After you have executed the steps in your question, stellar will be open to receiving transactions at
localhost:8000/tx?blob=Base64 (See commands). You can confirm stellar is running with
The base64 blob is the the XDR encoded form of a transaction. In your case you will want that transaction to contain a
You want to populate the network passphrase with
Standalone Network ; February 2017. This is the value in the container's file
Thanks for the help! So I am running a Windows machine, and to execute the above I am using an Amazon EC2 cloud instance and connecting with it using puTTy. So, I cannot use local host on my own operating system. So in the below example: var StellarSdk = require('stellar-sdk') var server = new StellarSdk.Server('horizon-testnet.stellar.org'); Can use the IP address of the VM instead of the URL horizon-testnet.stellar.org. If the answer to the above question is 'Yes', how should I enter the IP, which format will it be in, should I also specify the port like 8000?
Yes. The port will be 8000, as you defined
-p "8000:8000" when starting the docker container. The ip address will be the address of the ec2 instance (name or number is fine), but you would need to define a security group that allows inbound TCP on port 8000.
