Can't bind mysql on localhost

(nicolas De Loof) #1

Expected behavior

Running mysql docker image on Docker4Mac in VPN mode
mysql -u user -h localhost -P 3306 --protocol=TCP -ppass database should work like it does on a Linux box

Actual behavior

Can’t connect.
Need to switch off VPN mode and use -h docker.local
