Docker doesn't play nice with OSX Application Firewall

Expected behavior

When mapping a container to a host port, I should be prompted to allow the application to open the port in the firewall.

Actual behavior

No prompt occurs and I cannot contact opened ports without disabling the Application Firewall entirely.

Just to verify, I experience the same. No registry of service when I start docker engine and I can’t access docker containers outside the machine.

I can’t even use my usual proxy trick as a work around as the ports are bound already

I’m having a similar issue. Can’t connect to privileged ports from outside my host with the application firewall enabled.
