Docker client configuration to connect remote host on windows

docker

(Oriolaakeem) #1

I have a peculiar issue I will like someone to help me with; I have a MAC machine and I have installed docker CE on and its running fine.
The issue is I have is that I want to connect a docker client I installed on a window VM using virtualbox. to the docker engine on the Host MAC.

when I ran C:\Users\Administrator>docker ps on the VM command prompt I get
error during connect: Get http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.33/containers/json: open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the file specified. I
n the default daemon configuration on Windows, the docker client must be run ele
vated to connect. This error may also indicate that the docker daemon is not run
ning.

This setup was just for development I need help with the configuration
