Connect to Docker Daemon on Windows Server


(Franklin89) #1

So I followed the following instruction on creating a Docker Host VM on Virtual Box with Windows Server 2016 TP 5 as shown in this link (https://github.com/Microsoft/Virtualization-Documentation/blob/live/virtualization/windowscontainers/quick_start/quick_start_windows_server.md)

That worked great…now i can start my containers from the powershell inside the VM and it works.

But I don’t want to open the VM every time I want to run a container. How can I connect to the docker daemon running in the VM from my Laptop…just like the default linux machine docker would normally create.

Any help is appreciated…
