GUI Preference to easily connect to remote docker host

beta

(Justin Partain) #1

So, after poking around a bit in the docs, it looks like its possible to change the environment for Docker to connect over to another machine’s Docker-Machine socket to be able to control that machine and make guests. But, I’ve yet to see that explicitly explained in any way.

BUT my big reason for posting tonight is, why is that not an option in the Wale GUI???

Lets say I’m sitting at my Desk at work, but the server hosting Docker is, well, not at my desk. The only way I’ve really been able to think of controlling the host is by ssh’ing directly.

I’d like to be able to connect to that hosts socket while still in my local machine.
