Windows 2000 on Docker

A Docker image for Windows 2000 Advanced Server with SP4.

Desktop

Start an instance

docker run --detach \
  --name qemu-win2000 \
  --device /dev/kvm \
  --publish 127.0.0.1:3389:3389/tcp \
  --publish 127.0.0.1:5900:5900/tcp \
  --publish 127.0.0.1:6080:6080/tcp \
  docker.io/hectormolinero/qemu-win2000:latest

The instance can be accessed from:

  • RDP (3389/TCP): any RDP client, login with Administrator / password.
  • VNC (5900/TCP): any VNC client, without credentials.
  • noVNC (6080/TCP): http://127.0.0.1:6080/vnc.html
  • Shell: docker exec -it qemu-win2000 vmshell

Additionally the contents of the /mnt/ directory in the container will be exposed on the Z: drive via SMB.
