Select the method for connecting to the Docker API.
Docker for Windows: The recommended option when using Docker Desktop for Windows.
Docker for Mac: The recommended option when using Docker Desktop for Mac.
Unix socket: This is the recommended connection option for Linux.
Docker Machine: If you are using Docker Toolbox for Windows or macOS, this is the recommended option for connecting to the Docker API. If the Connection successful message doesn't appear, check your Docker Machine executable setting on the Docker | Tools page.
TCP socket: This method should work for any Docker version and operating system. Use this method only for special cases and custom configurations. In most cases, you should use one of the recommended methods that don't require manual configuration.
If you are using Docker Desktop and want to connect through the TCP socket, enable the Expose daemon on tcp://localhost:2375 without TLS option in the General section of your Docker settings. Then set Engine API URL to tcp://localhost:2375.
If the option is disabled, then you can connect through a named pipe: npipe:////./pipe/docker_engine.
Leave the Certificates folder field empty.
If you are using Docker Toolbox, set Engine API URL to https://192.168.99.100:2376 and Certificates folder to %HOMEPATH%\.docker\machine\machines\default.
If you are using Docker Desktop, set Engine API URL to unix:///var/run/docker.sock and leave the Certificates folder field empty.
If you are using Docker Toolbox, set Engine API URL to https://192.168.99.100:2376 and Certificates folder to ~/.docker/.
Engine API URL: unix:///var/run/docker.sock
Certificates folder: leave empty
For Windows and macOS: Specify the mappings for folders that can be shared between the host and the container volumes.
Use to edit an existing mapping, or to create a new one.
Local path: The path to the local folder that you want to make available for volume bindings.
Virtual machine path: The corresponding directory path in the Docker virtual machine's file system.
