Docker HTTP(S) API no longer available in beta9?


There will be an HTTP(S) URL (or it will be possible to configure one) under which Docker API will be exposed.

Actual behavior

With docker.local removed in beta9 can’t seem to find such API. There’s of course unix:///var/tmp/docker.sock but due to I can’t use it with IntelliJ

Any hints enabling me to use non-Unix socket API are welcome. TIA.

Did you read the release notes?

And I seriously hope that you are using a recent version of Docker. Beta 9 is roughly 4 years old?

thanks my issue has been fixed.
