Accessing Docker Daemon on port 2375

Is it possible to allow application on the Mac access to Docker on port 2365?

I am trying to use Eclipse with a maven build tool ( com.spotify:docker-maven-plugin ) that attempts to access http://localhost:2375 to deploy the container but it is failing as nothing islistening on that port.

I found a solution, I need a DOCKER_HOST set as unix:///var/run/docker.sock

To get this active for windows applications on the mac I needed to create a ~/Library/LaunchAgents/environment.plist file with the following config

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">
    launchctl setenv DOCKER_HOST unix:///var/run/docker.sock

Then after a reboot of the mac the setting is available for all applications including Eclipse and the docker-maven-plugin
