After Setup Sitecore Helix from https://github.com/Sitecore/Helix.Examples. I am able to access Sitecore instance using container IP address but instance are not accessible as https://cm.basic-company-unicorn.localhost/

for this I did change in hosts file by replacing with container IP address, but still url not accessible neither http://cm.basic-company-unicorn.localhost/ nor https://cm.basic-company-unicorn.localhost/ way.

Steps which followed during setup

  1. cloned Helix.Examples repo
  2. only changed port for solr service in docker-compose.yml to avoid conflict
  3. docker-compose up -d
  4. success and on dashboard containers are running
  5. while accessing https://cm.basic-company-unicorn.localhost/ getting error on page: "This site can’t be reached"
  6. but able to access sitecore page using container IP address

Please let me know if I am missing any steps.
