Short Description
Proxies the unix socket file as tcp port
Full Description

The latest 1.3.0 version of boot2docker changes a couple of things:

  • comes with TLS enabled by default
  • changes default port from 2375 to 2376
  • needs 3 env variable to be set


While switching on TLS is highly recommended, but its not backward compatible.
Some tools or environments are relying to be able to connect to Docker
via simple http. So after upgrading to 1.3.0 they might break.


One solution is to start a container which uses socat to proxy the unix
socket file as tcp port. It is containerized for you:

$(docker run hortonworks/socat)

Now you can reach Docker the old way:
