Remote hosts with docker desktop for Mac OS

I have been fooling with it a while, and I have tried everything from setting my export DOCKER_HOST: to adding a "host":["tcp://x.x.x.x:2375"] to my daemon.json file directly and no luck.

Is it possible whatsoever to point docker desktop for Mac to a remote docker host? I have the remote host accessible already, and I already setup an alias dockerx to run commands on it from the CLI. However it would just be nice to connect it to the desktop GUI as well.

Thanks for any help!
